Abstract: The geography of our planet shows increasingly an urban orientation. Cities or urban agglomerations have a great variety of advantages, but exhibit also negative externalities. This paper seeks to highlight the research challenges inherent in an urbanised world. Particular attention is given to the solution potential offered by ‘smart cities’. The paper concludes with lessons for urban governance.
