Smart cities, strategies and technologies, are generating interest globally to address the contemporary urban problems: rapid urbanization, stressed city finances, aging infrastructure, rising energy costs, global warming, bad ecology, and competition for global investment and skilled labor, urban poverty, social exclusion and spatial marginalization. The Smart City “X” Global Initiative aims to build a new city or to transform any modern city as environmentally sustainable, inter- connected, instrumented, innovative, and integrated, regionally and globally attractive for businesses, citizens, visitors and investors. Considering the 21st century will be a century of cities, most global investment and public funding will go for innovative city projects. SMART CITY is to be managed by its urban brains, an intelligent city cloud platform, managing its resources, assets, processes and systems: Urban Land and Environment, Roads and Transportation, Energy networks and Utilities, ICT networks and fiber telecom infrastructure, Public and residential buildings, Natural Resources, Water and Waste management, Social infrastructure, Health and safety, Education and culture, Public administration and services, Communities and Businesses. http://eu-smartcities.eu/content/show-world-you-are-smart-city
  2. 2. THE CENTURY OF SMART AND SUSTAINABLE CITIES  The future of our world is decided by the quality of its future cities.  Globally, there are about 700 cities, each with population exceeding 500,000  The top 25 cities of the world today account for half of the world’s wealth.  The infrastructure investment for the cities is forecast to be $30 trillion to $40 trillion, cumulatively, over the next 20 years.  It’s projected that over 40 global cities will come as Smart Cities by the year 2020.  On the top, the United Nations expects almost doubling of urban population by 2050  The global population will increase from 7 billion to 9 billion.  The 21st Century is to become the century of smart cities  There are no examples to date of cities with fully integrated, strategically designed comprehensive Smart City development programs  The Smart Cities Global Initiative is to advance the most ambitious and comprehensive Smart City development strategies to systematically improve urban land and environment, physical and social infrastructures, quality of life and well-being, resilience and sustainability, innovation and creativity, economy and competitiveness, governance and management.  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/smart-city-global-initiative Smart Cities Global Initiative 2014 Azamat Abdoullaev
  3. 3. SMART CITY GLOBAL COMPETITION  The question of who is to lead the future cities market is getting a global meaning as far as global competitors are actively pursuing large Smart City programs as part of smart revolutions: http:// www.slideshare.net/ashabook/smart-revolution  In its Five-Year National Planning, China’s future “smart cities” are to become a main driver of its urbanization process, with 2 trillion yuan ($322 billion) to be allocated to more than 600 cities nationwide.  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/smart-china  China’s going for “the business as usual” approach consisting in requesting the fragmented services from the increasing army of urban planners and architects, operators and exporters of smart city technologies, products and services, which SMART City “X” should avoid: Following the India Vision 2020, the nation is embarking on an ambitious $90 billion two-phase industrial program to build new industrial cities as smart, sustainable cities of the future, along a territorial corridor, spanning six states, connecting two capitals, Delhi and Mumbai, and affecting 14% of India’s population. Conceptualized with the Government of Japan, the DMIC program master plan is mostly focusing on deploying next generation technologies and road/rail/air connectivity and infrastructure linkages, with 24 economic nodes, investment regions and industrial areas. The goal is to expand national manufacturing and services base, becoming a "Global Manufacturing and Trading Hub”, minimizing green growth and social development programs.  The Japanese Government created a “FutureCity” with a goal to “construct sustainable cities with superior environmental technologies, core infrastructure and resilience all over the world…to advance the “Future City” model of urban planning with state-of-the-art environmental sustainability, strong disaster resilience and superb livability”. http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/smart-japan  The European Union has embarked on a long-term strategy for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. There are more than 100 000 cities, towns and communities in EU, with a fierce competition for resources, local, regional and global, and public and private capital. Only innovative cities, towns and communities with innovative public projects will have a strong competitive advantage.  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/urban-europe  The European Commission established a European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Smart Cities and Communities.  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/smart-europe  Russia’s expenses just for its intelligent model community (Skolkovo Innovation Center) might exceed $15 billion, not mentioning it’s planned multibillion infrastructure projects. http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/sustainable-russia  Again, following the mega trend of smart global urbanization, the UK Government organized the Smart Cities Forum coordinated by Technology Strategy Board, with very useful initiative of the Future Cities Demonstrator competition:  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/smart-britain Smart Cities Global Initiative 2014 Azamat Abdoullaev
  4. 4. SMART CITIES GLOBAL INITIATIVE: KEY MOTIVATION  The Smart Cities Global Initiative is meeting an increasing concern of multitude of narrow technical visions, models and approaches, when on many occasions, “the push towards smart cities is being led by the wrong people – technology companies with naïve visions and short term commercial goals; while the architects, planners and scientists… often struggle to share their specific knowledge” (Townsend, “Smart Cities”).  That short-sighted trend is to be remedied by the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) bringing together cities, industry and citizens to improve urban life through more sustainable integrated solutions (see an Invitation for Commitments, http://www.eu-smartcities.eu/ ).  The Smart City “X” Global Initiative is to re/integrate all the sustainable city dimensions, Smart Transportation and Sustainable Mobility, Smart and Green Energy, Intelligent ICT, as well as Smart Water, Smart Waste, Smart Governance, Smart People, Smart Safety and Security, Smart Living, Smart Economy and Smart Environment.  The Global Initiative is innovating a global vision, single strategy, and integrated urban planning (creating and following new regulations and standards for land use and zoning, ecology, transportation, roads and streets, housing, sanitation, water supply, sewage, public spaces, public health conditions, education, security and other social services).  The Fortunes of Cities Will be Decided by the Strategies They Adopt.  The Smart Cities of the Future are strategic leverage mechanisms for sustainable national recovery and global sustainability.  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/smart-city-global-initiative  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/sustainable-city; http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/future-cities-27402134 Smart Cities Global Initiative 2014 Azamat Abdoullaev
  5. 5. SMART CITIES GLOBAL INITIATIVE: BENEFITS AND PROSPECTS  The Smart Cities “X” Global Initiative is designed for “X” megacities, municipalities or communities, from Adelaide to London to Moscow to Peking to Washington, or brand new cities, all who are after a unified smart community development strategy and holistic sustainable planning, unifying all the city systems, services, operations, activities, departments and agencies as a sustainable smart urban ecosystem.  The Smart City “X” Consortium will provide intelligent property investment to selected urban entities through strategic advice, as well as sustainable city exclusive education and training. It is planned that the EIP Platform Stakeholders will constitute a core of the Consortium.  Successful applications are to provide evidence that the municipality or community has potential capacity to tap the intelligent resources offered through the Smart Cities Global Initiative, that its transformation to a smart city has a strong leadership and that the city has strong intentions to invest intelligent and financial capital into smart and sustainable urban development  A City’s Universities will be assisted to lay out Masters and PhD programs and courses in smart cities, online and offline.  A City Hall will be assisted with exclusive Smart City seminars for city councils and all the key stakeholders and industrial partners.  In addition, a City’s Developers will be assisted with modeling and planning the economy-sized sustainable property development projects.  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/sustainable-city  http://eu-smartcities.eu/blog/smart-city-commitments-permanent-strategic-consultancy-group  http://eu-smartcities.eu/blog/how-build-sustainable-cities-roadmap-mayors-city-managers-and-city-councils Smart Cities Global Initiative 2014 Azamat Abdoullaev
  6. 6. SMART MUNICIPALITIES COMMITMENT APPLICATION  Local authorities must have initial funds for the smart city comprehensive strategy, integrated planning and urban intelligence governance cloud platform.  Local authorities understand the criticality of the overall growth strategy, integrated planning and intelligent design of the smart city projects.  Local authorities must be willing to scale up and replicate both strategic knowledge and model projects at the national and international levels.  A local Smart City Advisory Council is to be established to take responsibility and support of the strategic growth plan of the city.  A local university or group of universities or research institutions and industry are to be committed in the smart cities R & D & I.  Municipalities selected for the Smart Cities Global Initiative will be required for citizen engagement and involvement and knowledge sharing to help all the project stakeholders make optimal contributions.  http://www.slideshare.net/ashabook/future-city-commitment Smart Cities Global Initiative 2014 Azamat Abdoullaev
