The smart city – meeting the urban challenge

More than half of the world’s population lives in cities. The rapid urbanisation poses major challenges with regards to living environment, water treatment, sewage, waste, and air quality.

The smart city – meeting the urban challenge is a toolkit based on eight cases with Swedish initiatives that strive to meet these challenges.

This toolkit is linked to the Swedish Government’s innovation partnership programmes and 4 more toolkits connected to the themes will be available by the end of 2018.
