how this program will help cities

From electric cars and renewable energy to cloud computing and AI, technology helps city dwellers work smarter, live healthier, and conserve resources. Cities such as Copenhagen, Detroit, and Tel Aviv are already successfully using technology to achieve these goals. But it's not enough.

City officials want more than examples of technological solutions: they need an evidence-based roadmap to making their cities safe, sustainable, and resilient. A roadmap that includes lessons learned from the current pandemic, centered on the social imperatives that matter most, and based on objective quantitative analysis that shows which investments work best.

smart city solutions for a riskier world

Our new study, Smart City Solutions for a Riskier World, will do this by examining how 150 cities harness technology to drive resilience, sustainability, and citizen-centricity. Our urban economists and experts will examine the social, environmental, and economic impact of investments in smart technologies—and the solutions and strategies that work best. We will work with a coalition of corporate, academic, and government leaders on this research initiative.

Our goal is to provide city leaders with an evidence-based roadmap to resilience and sustainability and open a valuable ongoing dialogue between cities and the companies that serve them.
