Anne F. Kerr

Global Head Cities, Mott MacDonald (Hong Kong)

Dr Anne Kerr leads Mott MacDonald’s Global Cities Initiative providing expertise in master-planning and development for national development and cross boundary strategies as well as plans for integrated developments (both new and redevelopment) for communities, landuse and transportation, innovative technologies, and resource management. The initiative is charged with futures thinking, policy setting and development of implementation strategies and business plans.

She has been involved in the development of strategic business plans for developments for both brown and greenfield sites, and advises governments, developers and agencies on policy matters and strategies to deliver integrated solutions for the built environment – always putting people first. Of particular focus is the inclusion of UN SDG’s through project delivery. Anne also initiated the Smart City Forum in HK for the British Chamber of Commerce, and liaises with Governments on the inclusion of targets, and goals in achieving smarter solutions for cities.


DATA – The New Oil For Sustainable City Design
Data is often referred to as the new oil, but does this mean there are vulnerabilities in terms of smart cities and sustainable designs for the future? Who holds the data when designing a digital twin for a city or components thereof, and then who owns the data once the city infrastructure is built? Should smart cities be open source and available to all – will this drive better city designs for the future? These questions which prevail around the digital century will affect sustainable and green city design and its development.
