BBSR among 20 best Global Smart Cities
Bhubaneswar has added another feather to its cap by finding itself ranked in the Top 20 “Best Performing Smart Cities” globally by the Juniper Research, an England-based research and consulting organisation.
The survey was conducted during July and September 2017. Bhubaneswar has performed well in sectors like mobility, health, safety and productivity and has become the only city from India to be placed in the Top 20 list.
Besides Bhubaneswar, the other cities including Singapore, San Francisco, London, New York, Barcelona, Berlin, Chicago, Portland, Tokyo, Melbourne, San Diego, Seoul, Nice, Dubai, Mexico City, Wuxi, Rio de Janeiro, Yinchuan and Hangzhou came under the survey for a “Global Smart City Performance Index 2017,” which was released on Monday.
Under the safety category, Barcelona, Berlin, Portland, Mexico City, Wuxi, Yinchuan and Hangzhou were placed after Bhubaneswar in making the adolescent girls and women empowered with self-defence techniques and ways to become socially smart. The programme is jointly launched by the Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL) and the UNFPA.
The Bhubaneswar Smart City Plan (SCP) redefines the concept of “Smart Cities" and outlines a citizen-driven vision for the future by using technology to help residents gain better access to city services and improve the overall quality of life. Ranked first in the Government of India’s Smart City Challenge and made it to the final list for the World Smart City Awards in 2016 held in Barcelona, Bhubaneswar played a pivotal role in redefining and demystifying the concept of the smart cities movement in developing countries.
