Livable Cities Forum:

Digital Solutions for Livable Asian Cities

On November 12-14, 2019, The Asian Development Bank and The Asia Foundation will co-host a forum on “Digital Solutions for Livable Asian Cities” in San Francisco, California.

Asian cities play a crucial role as centers of innovation and entrepreneurship that propel economic growth and competitiveness in the region. At the same time, rapid urbanization is posing challenges that affect planning, administration, health, security, economic growth, opportunity, and quality of life—posing unique challenges for vulnerable populations.

These issues are exacerbated as Asia’s growing cities increasingly dominate the region’s political, economic, and cultural landscape. Left unchecked, these challenges can impede the sustained growth of Asian cities and limit opportunities for broader participation in and benefit from economic development.

The Forum will capitalize on Silicon Valley/Bay Area expertise alongside global stakeholders—incubators, accelerators, academic institutions, thought leaders and others in this sector to develop and adapt digital solutions for smarter, more livable Asian cities.

This event is by invitation only, for more information contact Behnaz Raufi.

Organized in partnership with:

 

ASEAN participants are financed by the ASEAN Australia Smart Cities Trust Fund (AASCTF) funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
