Smart Laws for Smart Cities

There is a growing consciousness for the application of a smart city agenda in the modern governance. How can governance ensure that the function of law does not impose limitations towards progress and prosperity of our society and our surroundings?

The term “Smart City” is gaining attraction as we speak, as more and more governments are beginning to implement the technologies that lead to higher standards of living. The fourth issue of “Cities in Motion Index” compiled in 2017 by the IESE Center for Globalization and Strategy, analyses 79 characteristics across 10 different spectrums of urban life, the majority of which are dominated by North American and European cities—although the technology is dominated by Taipei.

Cities located in Europe and North America account for 43 out of the top 50. San Francisco has been one of the major players in various rankings— the development of the smart city concept has been present for multiple decades. The current government has set a very ambitious, yet attainable target of eliminating all carbon emissions by 2020, and they will do so by enhancing the effectiveness and levels of power generated through sustainable sources, which already account for 41% of overall electrical supply.
