Policy research roadmap for the transition to smart eco city
Ⅰ. Introduction
o As more than half of the world’s population live in cities, it is in these areas that most environmental problems exhibit themselves, including greenhouse gas emissions, waste generation, and energy consumption.
ㅇ Korea is no exception, with the majority of citizens living in urban areas o especially cities. In lieu of this, sustainability is a key issue and has a significant influence on environmental factors such as climate change, conservation, and management of natural ecosystems, as well as problems related to human survival and general quality of life.
ㅇ Smart cities could develop into eco-friendly areas with limited resources by incorporating ICT technology into existing infrastructure, city management system and program for changing citizen behavior.

o This study promotes the idea of using ICT and eco-friendly technology to create a “smart city,” and also presents a policy research roadmap to achieve this.
ㅇ In this study, the goals for the transition to an smart eco city were derived through a synthesis of literature reviews of prior studies, expert forums, and seminars. Further, a group of experts in each field was formed to identify policy research tasks to achieve these goals.

Ⅱ. Transition to a Smart Eco City
o Due to the intensification of global environmental crises such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, the proliferation of fine dust, extensive health hazards, and general environmental injustice, it is a time for the development of a new policy paradigm regarding the urban environment.
