Urban Infrastructure
In Smart Cities

By 2050, the world population will exceed 9 billion, out of which 70% will live in cities that cover just 2% of the Earth's surface. Such population and migration patterns will impose multiple risks on public health & safety, which is why resilient and sustainable urban infrastructure will be the very backbone of future cities.
