Project Summary

Asia-Pacific is the world’s fastest growing region for urbanization development. It is estimated that the region’s urbanization rate will reach 50 per cent in 2026 and that the cities will be an increasingly critical factor for creating and sustaining economic growth. Many cities in the APEC region still face the challenges of inadequate infrastructure, growing inequalities and poverty, as well as rising environment pollution and require increased resilience towards natural disasters. While the urbanization rate of the Asia Pacific as a whole, continues its upward trajectory, the urbanization rate within the Asia Pacific varies widely by subregion. Making cities smarter is an essential factor in the global effort to achieve sustainable, inclusive growth, consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals. 

This project in conceived as a case-study research project, which seeks to offer member economies useful knowledge and reference material on successful practices and innovative solutions implemented by other member economies who have overcome similar challenges. In this way, by sharing experiences and offering policy recommendations, it will contribute to smarter urbanization processes across the Asia-Pacific region and foster opportunities for smart cities cooperation within APEC economies in the digital age.
