This abstract explores the role of technology in enhancing the environmental performance of urban spaces. Rapid urbanization and increased environmental concerns have made it imperative to seek innovative solutions. Technology offers various opportunities to address these challenges. Smart transportation management systems optimize traffic flow, reduce congestion, and minimize emissions through the use of intelligent traffic signals and real-time data analysis. Smart energy management technologies enable efficient monitoring and control of energy consumption, promoting energy savings and reducing carbon footprints. Smart waste management solutions, such as sensor-equipped bins and data-driven collection schedules, improve waste management efficiency and promote recycling. Additionally, smart infrastructure, including smart lighting and water management systems, enhance energy efficiency and resource conservation. Furthermore, technology plays a crucial role in promoting environmental awareness through the use of mobile applications and online platforms, disseminating information and encouraging sustainable practices among urban residents. By harnessing the potential of technology, urban spaces can become more environmentally friendly, fostering sustainable development and improving the quality of life for residents.
