Towards smart, sustainable and social urbanization.
About the Agenda
The issue of urbanization is one that will affect many of the ASEAN region’s population, as it is expected that the urban population will increase to 49.7% of the total population by 2025.
Thus, we need to prepare for this shift in the residential demographic and ensure our cities are livable, equitable and healthy by taking an integrated approach to urban planning and management.
The emergence of smart city initiatives means there is a need for multi-dimensional, data-driven collaboration which work to harmonise the core elements of; economic growth and innovation, social inclusion and the environment. By encouraging this collaboration, we can move beyond simple sustainability and work towards the ultimate goal of regeneration.
This Collaborative Transformation agenda will thus focus on the following areas:
- Smart Cities
- Sustainable Cities
- Social Cities
