Speech Title: Smart Water System in the Context of a Smart City

Abstract: Today over 50% of the world’s population lives in cities, and it is projected over 70% of the world’s population will reside in urban regions by 2050 and over 80% at the end of the century. This rapid growth of urbanization will bring about enormous challenges and impacts on society and the environment and one of them is water management. It is forecasted that the world inhabitants will use about 30% more water in 2025 than 2000, with further water shortages expected. Many countries and continents around the world are facing severe water shortage problems and they will be unable to provide access to clean water for economic reasons. In recent years, there were many consensuses on the establishment of the sustainable urban development or smart growth to provide effective countermeasures to address the water management issues. Today, smart cities are using different technologies and devices, including IOT, sensors, smart meters, monitors, mapping and other data-sharing tools for smart water programs. The market for these kinds of technologies is growing rapidly and it is projected to reach up to 18.5% by 2024 ($31.6 billion) compare with 2018. In this speech the key elements of smart cities and smart water management system will be explored and discussed.
