Centre for Smart Cities, Bangalore has been included in the Apex Monitoring Committee representing stakeholders along with TERI, C-DAC, World Bank and UN Habitat.
According to a study of the MIT Media Lab,
“in the near future, cities will account for
90% of the global population growth,
80% of the wealth creation and
60% of the total energy consumption.”
Developing strategies for creation of Smart Cities is,
therefore, a global imperative.
