The Smart City Scheme

Published on the

Mauritius is now turning towards the Smart City concept. Despite the fact that there is no universally accepted definition of the term Smart City, it can be defined as a process, an aspiration and, at the very least, a project. It is a developed urban area that creates sustainable economic development and high quality of life by excelling in multiple key areas; economy, mobility, environment, people, living, and government. Excelling in these key areas can be done so through strong human capital, social capital, and/or ICT infrastructure. Many cities worldwide have already adopted a customized version of this concept: Stockholm in Sweden, Rio in Brazil and Lyon is the south-east of France. Eastern cities like Hong Kong and Singapore opted for a more technological approach while other countries have following in their footsteps by integrating new targets in a more thoughtful urbanization process.
