The city’s water sensitive urban design and green infrastructure also helps to create a resilient and liveable environment, promoting education and awareness of sustainability and balance with nature. With innovative features such as rain gardens, bioretention areas, and drought-tolerant planting, the city will also minimize water consumption and reduce peak temperatures.
This sustainable approach to food production will provide residents with locally grown produce, promoting food security and nutrition. Urban farming also strengthens the resilience of the city and educates youth on the food system. The latest agri-tech is used for higher yields and reduction in groundwater contamination, resulting in exponential water savings and increased nutritional density.
The city also has a connected mobility strategy that is focused on autonomous, shared, and electric vehicles, with EV charging stations and self-driving cars. The city will also create a green economy through a two-way grid system that imports and exports renewable energy. Smart urban farms using saline water and other sustainable farming methods are also integrated into the city’s food production.
