HYDROGEN POWERED CITY BUS

HYDROGEN POWERED CITY BUS

The report looks into Aberdeen city’s architecture and infrastructural evolution over the years. It examines the processes of renewing old infrastructure and bringing them to maximum utilization in today’s age of technologically driven cities. It reviewed the development history of Aberdeen from around 8th century AD through the years of granite, oil exploration to the present day of green energy.

The report while taking note of the successes recorded by Aberdeen in creating comfortable, livable and sustainable environment for the residents and visitors, it is envisaged to be a tool for other cities, especially in developing countries on how to formulate a template that will ensure equality and fairness in accessing urban resources and infrastructure.

The 1996 local government reform and the prevailing urban system in Aberdeen presents a compelling experience on the true structure of decentralization and effectiveness of local authority in delivering urban services and infrastructure to the residents in comparison to over centralization of governance and weak local administration in some cities of developing countries. In the 1920s and 1930s serious slum clearance took place in Aberdeen. Between 1919 and 1939, 2,955 slum houses were demolished. Some 6,555 council houses were built. The former slum dwellers were re-housed in many council houses built-in the city at that time. This is a classical example of government dignifying its citizens by moving them from vulnerable to respected conditions and a viable learning platform for cities facing the challenge of informal settlements.

Further, the report explores how Aberdeen is utilizing city branding, collaboration and partnership with local and foreign stakeholders, logical implementation of plans, engagement of residents and creating conducive business environment for the private sector to execute tactical urban development projects. It reviewed the city’s trend and strategies in transportation, water and sanitation, waste management, energy delivery and general living conditions.
