The economically active population in the Middle East is growing a lot faster than any other regions in the world. The Kuwaiti government has announced “Kuwait 2035”, which is a set of measures to boost the economy over the next 20 years through reducing on oil revenue and building the country as a hub for finance, trade and tourism in the region. Kuwait government has planned to build nine smart cities.
According to the Smart Cities Council (SCC), an industry coalition formed to accelerate the transition to the UN Agenda 2030 approved 'Next Society' cities; a smart city is defined as a city which has digital technology embedded across all city functions.The concept of the smart city has introduced the importance of Information and Communication technologies, in literature the term smart city is used to specify a city's ability to respond to the needs of its citizens. City developments are extensively influenced by the core systems of the cities such as transport, government services, education, public safety and health.
