We call a city smart if it invests in information and communication technologies to make use of its limited resources in a more efficient and productive manner; saves as a result of these investments; enhances the quality of services and lives based on the savings; reduces the carbon footprint left on nature; respects the environment and natural resources and; makes all these happen with innovative and sustainable methods.
