Session2 「Smart and resilient urban infrastructure」

Urban infrastructure forms a city’s backbone. Modern society has experienced rapid urbanization, in which politics, economy, community, and culture are centered on urban areas. Roads, subways, power lines, water supply systems, and drainage systems are tightly intertwined to sustain tens of thousands of urban infrastructures across a city.

With the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the convenient “always-on, always-connected” culture is reflected upon city infrastructures. Cities are now endowed with the tasks to implement state-of-the-art technology with urbanization.

Session 2- Smart, resilient urban infrastructure introduces a holistic approach to resilience by building on cities’ traditions of innovating using progressive solutions to make the city more livable, healthier, and safer.
