Energized Countries. Empowered Communities.
AESIEAP CEO CONFERENCE 2019
More than ever, cities and communities are playing an even more strategic role for humanity which is shaping our world today. And while cities generate most of the world’s GDP, they also use most of the natural resources of the planet. Over the next few decades the continuing urbanization and population growth is projected to add two billion people to the cities. All regions are expected to urbanize further, especially in Asia and the Pacific where the fastest growing megacities are located. This, according to the World Economic Forum, would be equivalent to creating a city the size of London or San Francisco every month over the next two decades, a development that will press cities to harness digital technologies to reshape communities to make them healthier, more efficient, connected, accessible, livable, and sustainable for their residents. In short, cities that are said to be prepared for the future.
