This panel will discuss urban climate change response in the age of the smart city. As greenhouse gas emissions reduction measures and climate action plans are implemented in cities, it becomes necessary to consider which visions of ‘smart’, ‘sustainable’ and ‘low carbon’ are being implemented and by whom. Panelists will examine the implementation of low-carbon transformations for urban infrastructure, with a focus on data-driven urban sustainability governance and the politics of the transition to smart/low carbon cities.
