Smart Cities And Flood Mitigation: Doable or Exorbitant?

In this week’s episode of People Planet Profit, we discuss if smart cities can help with flood mitigation or is the cost too exorbitant? This is especially relevant now with the monsoon season is befalling upon us. For more insight, we speak to Kerryn Coker, Co-Chair of Arup’s Australasia region. They are a design, engineering and architecture firm specialising in sustainable development using the smart city concept.
