|Inventing the Platform and Path to Sustainability Success
|Regenerative urbanism creates a balance where buildings, their occupants and the surrounding systems, both natural and man-made, work together to create resources rather than deplete them. Research shows that the integration of regenerative elements can yield greater returns over time. This approach uses dynamic governance systems to monitor and share the costs and benefits of urban life. It allows for multiple objectives to be achieved, from managing water and reusing waste biproducts to optimizing renewable resources across compact communities in new ways.

|Two barriers currently exist to effective and powerful smart city solutions. First, many current smart city ICT deployments are based on custom systems that are not interoperable, portable across cities, extensible, or cost-effective. Second, a number of architectural design efforts are currently underway (e.g. ISO/IEC JTC1, IEC, IEEE, ITU and consortia) but have not yet converged, creating uncertainty among stakeholders. To reduce these barriers, NIST and its partners convened an international public working group to compare and distil from these architectural efforts and city stakeholders a consensus framework of common architectural features to enable smart city solutions that meet the needs of modern communities.
