SDG Innovate: Digitalisation and Cities
Presented by SGInnovate and UNDP Global Centre for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development
With two out of every three people likely to be living in cities or other urban centres by 2050; digital, data, and technology will play an important role in making these settings enjoyable, productive, and sustainable. This is the concept of ‘smart cities’ – urban environments which leverage these tools to deliver better lives and livelihoods for their populations.

Much of the discussion around smart cities has focused on their potential in developed markets. However, with the extent and pace of urbanisation likely to be highest in emerging economies, there is a need to explore the role, need, and relevance of smart cities in developing markets.

Singapore is a leader in applying digital, data, and technology to improve the lives of its citizens and residents – from public service delivery through to initiatives such as Smart Nation Singapore. This event will consider what lessons can be learned from progress in Singapore, and how we can shape partnerships between Singapore and other cities – particularly in international development. This event will highlight opportunities to enable global progress around smart cities and ensure that no city – or citizen - is left behind.
