This chapter provides planning models for climate resilient and low-carbon smart cities as an urban innovation for sustainability, efficiency, resiliency, circularity, and connectivity of cities. The models incorporate strategic urban growth while keeping under control (or reducing) GHG emissions and vulnerability to climate change, bringing about growth benefits, in particular with the use of automation and Internet control system technology development. The complexity of a low-carbon smart urban development can be addressed and managed through connected networking and information sharing with ICT applications in areas such as transport, land-use planning, energy, water, and waste management under an integrated holistic approach.
