Energy supplies, transport networks, food production and housing will all require huge investment if they are to meet the demands of this mass urbanization. Smart cities are seen by many as the answer to this challenge of population migration. These urban areas use the latest information and communication technologies (ICT) to increase operational efficiency and create ecosystems to help meet these new demands.
