Cities and communities are underinvesting in the sensors and systems required to track local emissions and the resources required to meet climate targets and help mitigate the impact of local weather events. They are struggling to collect, aggregate, and share the necessary data across the public and private sector to enable data-driven mitigation and response.
Goals and Objectives
Cities are looking to implement connected systems and sensors as well as the big data analytics platforms required to track local emissions and more frequent and intense climatic hazards. Having a real-time, consolidated, visualized picture of risk associated with short- and long-term climate intelligence helps cities keep their employees and residents safer and meet their climate mitigation and adaptation targets, many of which are becoming enshrined in law.
Big data analytics, 3D modeling and forecasting tools, IoT devices, emission reporting dashboards, GPS tools and platforms, cloud computing, data visualization, digital twins, and early warning systems
Use Case Summary
Smart cities and communities leverage technology and data to track and gain insights from climate-related challenges including emission reduction and climate change adaptation. Data can be collected, processed, and analyzed in real time, providing situational awareness to city management as well as data to support reporting and emission reduction targets and mandates.
