Urban Infrastructure Issues, Urban Infrastructure Solutions
In successful economies, cities are the engines of growth and infrastructure plays a significant part in the generation of economic progress and development. It also performs as the main driving force of urban activities. However in the era of intelligent technology, wherein new business models and creative thinking are required to design contemporary systems based on hard infrastructure working together with operational and digital technologies, the developing citiesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ urbanisation is still getting manifested in the form of over-crowding, congestion, and inadequate infrastructure. Pollution, population, drinking water, sanitation, energy, mobility and transport, solid waste management, environmental degradation and many more such infrastructural issues still remain unaddressed. This following paper will present the current situation of the countryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s infrastructure at both urban and rural level, and the urgent necessity of an advanced and smart infrastructure in carrying out our per diem activities. A secondary case study will help us understand and analyse our infrastructural issues at a much comprehensive level. The paper will conclude on our projection established on the alternatives provided by the government, private and individual institutions. Apart from better assembly and integration of components to manage continuous change in demand and supply; leadership, finance, policy support, up gradation and citizen engagement are also few essential factors which determine urban infrastructure change.
