The Future of Asia and Pacific Cities 2019 Report: Webinar on Using Innovative Technologies to Build Resilient and Inclusive Cities
15:00-16:30 (Bangkok time)
Thursday October 11th 2018
The smartest cities are often those that build resilience into their planning, design, and structures by leveraging new frontier technologies with enhanced data applications that help to improve long-term decision making and increase the capacities of both systems and people. The webinar seeks to explore the application and distribution of technologies for urban resilience. In particular, it will examine questions of how new and emerging technologies can be utilized to enhance resilience (whether by governments, non-state actors, or citizens), and how evenly and effectively such technologies can be distributed so as to benefit the poorest and most vulnerable. This webinar will also have the co-benefit of supporting the Report’s focus on data and technologies for smart cities being developed in partnership with Singapore’s Centre for Liveable Cities.
