ABSTRACT:
Rapid urbanization, Environmental pollution and depletion of natural resources etc., pose great challenges for the cities all over the world. And some of the cities had already taken some tangible steps towards forming a special type of city called smart city. As a structure for urban transformation, smart city initiatives targets to connect the information and communication Technology and knowledge infrastructures for economic growth, Social unity, efficient city administration and Resource management. Earlier smart city initiative revealed several technical, social, economical, managerial and governance challenges arising due the complexity of smart city because it is a system of multiple systems. There is no precise developed framework of smart city initiatives available for to guide policymakers, practitioners, and other smart city stakeholders. In response to this need, my work presents a “Smart City Initiative Design Framework” resulted from the analysis of major smart cities programs like Seoul, Amsterdam etc,. The findings provide a design platform for the objectives, outcomes, implementation options, strategies, and the enabling different agencies in public and private Sectors for Smart city initiatives. The main objective of this study is to make the concept of smart cities easier to understand. My present work also discusses challenges in adopting smart city concepts and their sustainability in Indian conditions and proposes some effective and practical solution to build smart cities for a smart urban living.
