Journey Title Korea Innovation 2020: Korea's Smart City Strategy, Smart Cities of Korea and Global Smart City Partnership Program


Cities worldwide are going through a transformation as they incorporate smart technologies in their efforts to become more efficient, innovative, inclusive, and sustainable. Smart city projects around the world are helping solve urban problems and improve the quality of life by applying smart and disruptive technologies to cities. 
The Republic of Korea has undergone various experiences in urban development. For more than two decades, Korea has accumulated diverse know-how in urban development through much trial and error in the process of new town development. And many developing countries are interested in Korea’s experiences in urban development. Recently, Korea has focused on smart city policies and projects that are integrated through world-class ICT.
This Journey on Smart Cities will share smart city policies and practices in Korea, discuss global smart city opportunities and challenges, and how the WBG-Korea partnership can move forward.
