Orum I want to illustrate the importance of prioritization with an example. If the primary problem in Artvin is the flood disaster due to excessive rainfall caused by climate change, we will shift our efforts in this direction. We will solve the traffic problem of Artvin as a secondary problem. We will monitor the amount of precipitation instantly with the intelligent systems we will establish in accordance with our Black Sea Climate Change Action Plan. According to our results, we will establish intelligent network systems. As in the case of Artvin, we will produce intelligent solutions for disaster and emergency management, especially earthquakes in all of our cities. Disaster management applications, smart emergency response system, smart phone disaster mode applications such as we will implement for each city. If the transportation problem of the city is in the first place, we will give priority to transportation and health will give priority to health.

Kurum With the IQ tests we will do, we will measure the maturity levels of our cities and establish the Livable City Index. We will monitor changes in our cities and update needs with regular measurements. Here is an example. For example, the cost of waste collection and transportation in Istanbul is over 1 billion lira. With intelligent waste systems, that is to say, with intelligent systems, software, sensors that measure occupancy rates, separation rates of waste containers, we can greatly reduce this cost. In addition, as a country, we can save 45 percent on annual waste collection and transportation costs with smart waste collection systems. Water leakage rates in water networks can reach up to 50 percent. With smart systems, we can reduce this rate to 5 percent. This activity is a priority requirement of our country, which suffers from water stress. We aim to increase our water recycling rates from 1 to 5 percent. We are currently a country that uses 1500 cubic meters of water per capita and we are poor in water. And this figure will be reduced to 1200 cubic meters, we will start experiencing water shortages. With the foresight that water wars will emerge in the world in the 2050s, we see how important this work is. ”

We will design the city, which will be established on both sides of Canal Istanbul, according to the concept of smart neighborhood and smart city. In this sense, we will make two exemplary smart cities that will allow Istanbul to breathe with traffic, social equipment and green spaces, and we will present it to our nation.

This is our target. For this reason, we start activities in the smart city area regarding the market environment which is necessary for meeting the demands of human resources, technology and investment.
