With urbanization on the rise globally, failure to adapt to the new urban reality could be disastrous for cities facing unprecedented demographic, economic, social and environmental challenges. Development models are needed to transform such challenges into opportunities. The authors outline the strategic planning methodologies needed to create smart cities – sustainable, innovative, connected and socially cohesive places that enhance the quality of urban life. And when it comes to transforming cities, the private sector has plenty to contribute.
