Korea Innovation 2020: Smart Urban Resilience


"Smart city policies and practices in Korea in the context of Smart Urban Resilience"

The Republic of Korea has undergone various experiences in urban development. Korea had to overcome the ravages of the Korean War in the 1950s, and since the 1960s the country has achieved rapid economic growth. 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. Smart City, which combines smart and disruptive technologies into cities, will be a critical sector that can showcase Korea’s innovative technologies.  

Having technology is important to achieve smart objectives though it is not sufficient. If you do not have the foundational policies of urban management and urban governance, having the technology itself is not enough to deliver the results that citizens expect. In this Bite+, you will learn about smart city policies and practices in Korea in the context of Smart Urban Resilience.
