Davos - People are Cities
Davos Designing Smart Cities Session Summary
How can cities be designed for urban resilience and prosperity?
Understand the characteristics of smart cities
Rethink infrastructure for resilient dynamism
Share best practices and partnership models
Resilience is the capacity of cities to prepare, respond and recover.
Information technology does not make a city smarter or more resilient; rather, the solution lies in keeping the citizen at the centre and providing better, faster and cheaper services.
Cities share global values, including the primacy of safety and security, and the importance of convenience.
