Dear  Sefi Engrs,  
INDIA'S  SMART CITIES  INFRASTRUCTURE AND  US CIVIL/STRUCTURAL ENGRS. This is from latest ASCE Planned work shop on building Smart Cities long lasting infrastructure.
From:  ASCE :  
SMART CITY WORKS : Smart City Works was created to galvanize innovation and enable commercialization uniquely focused on the best ideas in support of civil infrastructure (the “built environment”) and improving livability in cities.  Through the creation of a new business acceleratorin this space and the first business “actuator”, Smart City Works will help mature companies and start-ups transition new ideas or inventions into viable growing businesses that deliver high-impact solutions to make cities smarter, safer, and more resilient. ASCE has combed through successful solutions across the major infrastructure sectors to identify the most innovative #GameChangers.Imagine what more we could do if we seize the opportunity to replicate these engineering innovations. Are you ready for tomorrow’s infrastructure?

Dear  SEFI  Engrs,

GOVT. OF INDIA'S  HAS BIG PLANS  FOR  SMART CITIES IN INDIA  AND  WHERE WE  CIVIL/STRUCTURAL  ENGINEERS COME IN ?    

From:  ASCE SmartBrief 22nd Nov. 2016:

Construction Corner: Are we going to have smart cities that benefit everyone? Urban populations are expected to grow by 2.5 billion by 2050, and hard infrastructure such as water filtration and wastewater plants, roads and airports will be a good place to start in creating smart cities, writes Korky Koroluk. Urban communities' ability to respond to issues in real time and avoid  the creation of over populated, polluted cities hinges on necessary decisions that are made now.

Dear  Sefi  Engrs ,

From :  ACI SmartBrief ,  July 11th, 2017 :

Smart city development involves risk assumption   :

Elizabeth Heider, chief sustainability officer for Skanska USA, explains why it's important for construction firms to be part of the dialogue around smart cities and resilient design. She also discusses risk assumption and its role in project delivery.
