Consultative approach needed for smart cities development

May 6, 2019 4:14 pm
Professor Jason Pomeroy

Smart cities and an infusion of traditional knowledge with technology is one of the key elements for future city developments.

This is also to ensure long term sustainability.

In essence this is what one Eco-architect suggested when it comes to looking at the future development of cities and towns.

Professor Jason Pomeroy says it’s imperative that there is a consultative approach when it comes to design and development of living spaces in which Fijians will inhabit.

“Increasingly what we’ve seen is that smart cities are very people driven, they’re much about trying to wake up to this understanding that people’s culture and people’s places of society is important and particular how people should be able to communicate their feelings openly with governments to say this is what I want out of my city.”

Pomeroy was one of the key speakers at the 52nd Asian Development Bank’s annual meeting of its board of governors which was held in Nadi last week.

The high-level meeting brought together a number of key speakers with 2,300 delegates in attendance to discuss the

ADB’s operational strategies along with the financial and technical assistance on offer.

The ADB annual meeting has become a premier forum for the discussion of economic and social development issues across Asia and the Pacific.
