Smart Cities

Smart Cities/State and federal governments

According to the UN, 68% of the world’s population will be living within urban areas by 2050. The resultant increase in consumption will lead to an exponential growth in the amount of waste produced.

Many smart cities around the world already recognise the need to closely monitor their environments so as to ensure they can effectively anticipate threats and put remedial measures in place to ensure the health and prosperity of their populations. The availability and quality of a city’s water is of paramount importance. Not only is it essential to sustain life, but it is often the conduit for travel, tourism, leisure activities and commercial endeavours.
