Cities are where majority of people are living as well as the main engines that drive our economy. People are attracted to live in cities as there are more hope for jobs, education, healthcare and better living standards. This is not a surprise that urbanisation rate keeps on increasing. With the scarcity of resources on earth and worsening of our environment, amplified further by climate change, cities have to be designed and reformed in a sustainable way and to provide safe, reliable and healthy places for their citizens to prosper. Latest ICT technologies will for sure contribute to smart living, in which convenience and enhancement are the keys. A holistic approach is required to shape our future cities as resources, constraints and requirements for growth are highly interconnected.
