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
Key Points
  • 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.  
  • Planning matters. 
  • Cities share global values, including the primacy of safety and security, and the importance of convenience.
