Megacities in developing countries suffer from serious traffic congestion, high levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and heavy air pollution. These urban areas face a stark dilemma: economic expansion attracts more people and vehicles; but the resulting traffic and pollution hinder further growth while reducing the quality of life for their citizens
Initiatives which catalyse climate action are now recognised increasingly as playing an important role in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and bridging the global emissions gap. The number and range of these initiatives is growing rapidly. There are several open questions about these initiatives at a global scale, including what contribution they can make to closing the emissions gap, but also what makes a successful initiative and how can this be replicated and scaled up. This paper focuses on the first of these questions

Every city can become smarter. Smart cities start with smart systems that work for the benefit of both residents and the environment. The cities that succeed in making the transition to ‘smart’ will be those that improve their critical systems by combining a bottom-up, systems-centric approach with a top-down, data-centric one.
If you want a successful EHS and carbon management program, the perspective is simple. To stay ahead you must look ahead… It’s about vision, not hindsight.
