ICT-A solution in India was awarded for its innovative application ‘Mu City Savior’

The Bhubaneswar ‘Mu City Savior’ ICT-A solution for transformative climate change received the Smart City India Awards 2020. This prize was conferred by the Indian Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, Hardeep Singh Puri, to The Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCT) on the 28th of February, for this innovative solution to manage urban flooding across the city. In particular, the application offer citizens an effective tool to report data when there is any garbage disposed in the city drains, also about the water flow of the drains and the level of the water in the drains. All this information goes to a system that holds pre-existent information in order to build a vulnerability map of the area and send notifications to the city officials for a prompt response to the problem. In essence, this ICT-A solution was built in a partnership between BSCT, Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation and the German Development Cooperation (GIZ).
