The vision of a smarter city is rapidly spreading among municipal leaders and citizens alike.  However, the challenge ahead lies in the process of turning the long-term vision into shorter-term actions.

When citizens imagine living in a smarter city, they do not visualize the technological and infrastructure implementations required to realize that vision – they only aspire to the outcomes of such a vision, such as less traffic, less pollution, better or less costly access to water and electricity, and other benefits to their quality of life.

At Schneider Electric, we have worked with multiple cities and achieved real results. That’s why we understand that no two smart city projects are the same. However, there is a common life cycle from which we can extract best practices to allow each and every city to become smarter - today.

During this webinar, we will walk you through the 5 stages of any smart city deployment – Vision, Solutions, Integration, Innovation, and Collaboration.  At each stage we will explore some of the challenges, share lessons learned and identify best practices to make cities smarter.

Developing Resilient Communities within Cities

Progress needs to be made in the evaluation of approaches to developing resilient communities. The evidence base for the effectiveness of these approaches is currently lagging behind practice. Funding for evaluation is generally too short-term to offer scope for capturing the developmental nature of community resilience related activity and evaluations on wider outcomes are lacking.

The Urgent Need for Public-Private Collaboration for Improving Disaster Resilience

Disaster resilience is frequently pursued separately by the public and private sectors in the US. Federal, state, and local governments take it as their role to execute disaster preparedness and emergency response for their populations; however, economic recovery is often not addressed. The public sector does not necessarily engage businesses, nor does it seem to plan for the economic “reboot” required after a disaster, resulting in business disruption continuing for much longer.
