Resilient Smart Cities: Theoretical and Empirical Insights
There is now reasonable consensus on the utility of smart city solutions for resilience and climate change adaptation/mitigation. However, the underlying principles of the concept of smart city resilience are not well explored. Also, limited knowledge exists on the actual and/or potential contributions of smart solutions. By filling these gaps, this book will support urban researchers, planners, and decision-makers in their efforts toward developing smart and sustainable cities.
The main question that this book will address is ‘do smart city projects contribute to urban climate resilience?’. Other noteworthy questions are ‘what are the indicators of smart city resilience?’, ‘what procedures should be taken to improve the efficacy of smart city solutions?’, and ‘what are the opportunities and challenges for promoting smart city resilience and for integrating resilience thinking into smart city planning?’
The book has two parts, one focused on the theoretical aspects of the concept of smart city resilience and the other on the empirical aspects. The first part discusses theoretical insights by synthesizing the state-of-the-art of research on smart cities and resilience. To make these theoretical aspects more tangible, through detailed analyses of selected smart city initiatives around the world, the second part provides insights on how to harness smart technologies for climate resilience and sustainability planning. In addition, the performance of selected smart cities around the world will be evaluated via several case study analyses.
