This report is designed to provide an overview of the smart cities sector in the Philippines. The Philippines, which has one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia, has joined the world’s move towards utilizing intelligent technologies that aim to speed up a country’s economy towards inclusive growth and enhance its citizen’s quality of living by way of technology and innovation.
The country is already laying the groundwork for the deployment of smart technologies. Leading telecoms and digital services provider PLDT has invested USD 6 billion over the last 10 years to roll out the country’s most extensive fixed and wireless network that includes a transmission and distribution network infrastructure which now has 150,000 kilometers of fiber optic cables, transporting the growing data traffic of its fixed line and mobile networks.
The Philippines is embarking on a massive infrastructure program, which will entail heavy public investment in building and transportation infrastructure over the next 6 years, with ICT expected to play a large role. The country’s very first smart city is the 9,450 hectare Clark Green City, which is being built in collaboration with private sector technology firms, multilateral agencies and foreign institutions to provide best-in-class ICT infrastructure. The new city is expected to provide a new benchmark and set standards for urban developments elsewhere in the country.
The report starts with a country profile, which is then followed by a snapshot of the Smart Cities sector. Rather than attempting to cover the entire Smart Cities sector, the report focuses on four key sectors, namely Smart Building, Smart Water, Smart Transport and Smart Energy. Starting with the Smart Building Subsector, we identify smart solutions and initiatives that have been deployed in the country. Subsequent chapters adopt the same approach.
