Today is World Population Day, an annual event created to draw the world’s attention to global population issues. According to the United States Census Bureau, there are 7,025,555,942 people in the world today, and as the numbers rise, so do the existing pressures of supporting this population.

With half of the world’s population concentrated in cities, urban areas are certainly feeling the weight of these problems. Traffic congestion, water management, communication technology, healthcare solutions and transportation in general are all systems that need to be constantly updated to run efficiently as urban populations grow.

How can we ­– as a global community – adapt and grow to alleviate these pressures and support a larger population?

This is the key problem that IBM’s Smarter Cities program works to solve.

Since its creation in 2008, IBM has completed more than 2,000 Smarter Cities Projects, working with cities from Rio to Singapore to Dubuque, Iowa.

By analyzing and then synchronizing agencies and sectors actions in systems of government, traffic, healthcare, public safety and energy, IBM helps decision makers anticipate problems and the city to run smarter.
