In the past editions, Governance Now has done series of nextgen cities which was supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India and actively engaging with key stakeholders on Technologies for People-centric Urban Development, governance, and infrastructure.
Today, we are again entering a new urban era. This transition is driven by emerging technologies and integration of “Smart City” and “Industry 4.0”. These concepts promise growth and progress through technology use. Most of the integrated solutions that empower a smart city are based on certain key technology which includes ICT, IoT, Geospatial Technology, AI, and Block chain. These core technologies form the backbone of all the major aspects of a city like traffic, finance, utilities, waste management, e-governance, and security.
By 2050, about 70% of the population of India would be living in cities. With this population shift, the need of the hour is Smart Cities that would support urban lifestyles. The components of a Smart City would include enabling a better life, with services, mobility, environment, e-governance, economy, sustainability and inclusiveness as the pillars for success.
The objective of the conclave is to bring the government officials, industry experts, technology solution providers at a common platform to deliberate upon technologies and innovations in urban planning, AI, IoT infrastructure, IT & e-Governance, infrastructure development, service delivery and implementation and development of smart cities.
