The development of the concept of "smart city" in the region and across the world has prompted the academic and administrative bodies in Afghanistan to study the feasibility of it in Afghanistan. It has been less than a decade that the concept and literature of smart city appeared among the engineers and welfare communities in Afghanistan. So the people of Afghanistan have been introduced conceptually to the terminology. The Government of Afghanistan in cooperation with the business community initiated building smart city in the outskirt of Kabul in 2015. Afghanistan is considering possibilities of building smart cities in metropolitan cities of Mazar-e Sharif, Herat, Kandahar and Jalalabad, and then to expand it to other parts of the country.
