Smart Cities - Overview

Smart cities rely on integrated and interconnected strategies and systems to effectively provide better services and increase quality of life, ensuring equal opportunities to all and protecting the environment.

A smart city continuously strives to improve social, economic and environmental sustainability outcomes. It responds to challenges like climate change, rapid population growth and political and economic instability by engaging with society, applying collaborative leadership methods, working across disciplines and city systems, and using data information and modern technologies.

City of Darwin is finding smart solutions to improve services to the community.

One significant project is Switching on Darwin. Funded by all three levels of government, Switching on Darwin will pilot a range of ‘smart’ technologies in the Darwin city centre.
