How Can I Contribute To Making Smart And Resilient Surat A Reality?
What Should Be SMC'S Priority To Make Surat Smart And Resilient City?
In Government of India’s Smart Cities Mission, Surat is selected as one of the Smart City. A smart city uses digital technologies or information and communication technologies (ICT) to enhance quality and performance of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption, and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens.
Surat is among a network of 100 Global Resilient Cities, an initiative pioneered by Rockefeller Foundation, USA. Resilient City is the City having the capacity of its individuals, communities, institutions, businesses and systems to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience. Chronic Stresses weaken the fabric of a city on a day-today or cyclical basis, examples include: high unemployment, inefficient public transportation systems, endemic violence, and chronic food and water shortages. Acute Shocks are sudden, sharp events that threaten a city, examples include: earthquakes, floods, disease outbreaks, and terrorist attacks.
