Embakasi Smart City

Konza will be a smart city, with an integrated urban information
and communication technology (ICT) network that supports
delivery of connected urban services and allows for efficient
management of those services on a large scale. Specifically, a
smart city framework will integrate the following four key city
services:
a. Infrastructure services (transportation, utilities, public safety,
environment)
b. Citizen services (access and participation)
c. City services (city information, planning and development)
d. Business services (supportive services for local commerce)
As a smart city, Konza will gather data from smart devices and
sensors embedded in the urban environment, such as roadways,
buildings, and other assets. Collected data will be shared via a
smart communications system and be analyzed by software that
delivers valuable information and digitally enhanced services to
Konza’s population. For example, roadway sensors will be able to
monitor pedestrian and automobile traffic, and adjust traffic light
timing accordingly to optimize traffic flows.
Konza’s population will also have direct access to collected data,
which may include traffic maps, emergency warnings, and
detailed information describing energy and water consumption.
The availability of data will enable Konza’s population to
participate directly in the operations of the city, practice more
sustainable living patterns, and enhance overall inclusiveness.
By leveraging the smart city framework, Konza will be able to
optimize its city services, creating a sustainable city that responds
directly to the needs of its residents, workers, and visitors.
The implementation of a smart city framework at Konza has
begun with detailed planning relating to ICT infrastructure. As
Konza continues to develop its technology network, it will draw
from a range of international best practices, including the
Intelligent Community Forum, Smart Cities Council, and
International Standards Organization’s methodologies for the
