Trilib', self-service waste sorting
Pour permettre à plus de Parisiens de trier plus simplement et pouvoir apporter une solution aux 10 % de Parisiens n’ayant pas de bac jaune, Citeo a conduit et financé une expérimentation à Paris : 40 stations trilib’, des containers de collecte de proximité disponibles 24h sur 24, implantés dans 4 arrondissements.
Mobilier urbain de tri et modulaire, la station trilib’ mutualise 5 flux : les emballages en verre, en métal, les bouteilles et flacons en plastique, les papiers et cartons et enfin les textiles. Innovation digitale et service à l’usager, les taux de remplissage des stations sont disponibles en temps réel sur...
To allow more Parisians to sort their waste more simply and be able to provide a solution to the 10% of Parisians who do not have a yellow bin, Citeo conducted and financed an experiment in Paris: 40 trilib' stations, local collection containers available 24 hours a day, located in 4 districts.
Modular urban sorting furniture, the trilib' station brings together 5 streams: glass and metal packaging, plastic bottles and containers, paper and cardboard, and finally, textiles. Digital innovation and user service, station filling rates are available in real time on the opendata.paris.fr platform.
The City of Paris has decided to deploy these stations that facilitate waste sorting and collection.
Each station collects around an additional 25 tonnes of packaging each year and improves the quality of sorting.
For 9 out of 10 Parisians, they are easy to use and show that waste sorting is really useful. Since 2017, this still experimental arrangement has already allowed the sorting and recycling, among other things, of 55 tons of plastic bottles, or about 2 million bottles.
A thousand Trilib' stations will be deployed throughout Paris from the end of 2019 to 2021 by the City of Paris with the support of Citeo.
 
300 participants at the 1st Free Transport City Meetings
Vous n’avez pas pu passer à côté : depuis le 1er septembre 2018, l’agglomération dunkerquoise est devenue la plus grande agglomération française à proposer un réseau de transports en commun entièrement gratuit à ses 200 000 habitants et à tous ses visiteurs. Dans la foulée, Dunkerque accueillait les premières Rencontres des villes du transport gratuit.
 
L’événement, le premier du genre en France, a attiré plus de 300 personnes – élus, techniciens, usagers, militants associatifs – venues des quatre coins du pays, voire de plus loin (Pologne, Allemagne, Estonie, Suisse, Brésil…).
...
You couldn't miss it: since 1 September 2018, the Dunkirk conurbation has become the largest French city to offer a completely free public transport network to its 200,000 inhabitants and all its visitors. In the process, Dunkirk hosted the first Free Transport City Meetings.
 
The event, the first of its kind in France, attracted more than 300 people - elected officials, experts, users, community activists - from all over the country, and even further afield (Poland, Germany, Estonia, Switzerland, Brazil...).
Invited to discover Dunkirk’s new bus network and the major urban developments carried out throughout the city, participants also attended roundtable discussions and expert presentations. A wonderful moment to reflect, question and exchange views before (perhaps) going free themselves.
The regional food project of Caen Normandy Metropole
Le projet alimentaire territorial de Caen Normandie Métropole a été lancé en octobre 2017 ; pendant une année, une démarche participative impliquant tous les acteurs du territoire a permis d'élaborer des orientations stratégiques qui ont été reconnues par le label du Programme national de l'alimentation (PNA) en février 2019.
 
 Par l'organisation d'ateliers thématiques et de visites de terrain localement (ferme urbaine, marché de gros, association d'insertion par le maraîchage, agriculteur permettant la cueillette aux particuliers, cantines proposant des menus végétariens....), les acteurs du...
Caen Normandy Metropole’s regional food project was launched in October 2017. For one year, a participatory approach involving all the regional players led to the development of strategic guidelines that were recognised by the National Food Programme (NFP) label in February 2019.
 
By organising thematic workshops and field visits locally (urban farm, wholesale market, association providing work in market gardening, farmer allowing individuals to do their own picking, canteens offering vegetarian menus and so on), stakeholders in the Caen region now have a qualitative and quantitative regional food diagnostic and routemaps to promote short food circuits.
 
The challenge now lies in implementing this ambitious 14-action plan, aimed at bringing consumers and food producers closer together in six strategic areas:

I - Implementing metropolitan food governance;
II - Taking food into account in planning and land use;
III - Supporting the local economy (distribution platform, vegetable provision, urban compost etc);
IV - Strengthening collaboration and social bonding (sustainable food house);
V - Promoting local sourcing in communities;
VI - Communicating about local food identity and Normandy gastronomy, raising awareness, educating and training.

The FRUGAL (Urban Forms and Food Governance) action research programme run with the University of Caen between 2016 and 2020 is proving to be a quality methodological support to this innovative community approach to food: researchers present the results of their research to elected officials each year and the participatory methodologies of communities at all levels (city, urban community, metropolitan cluster) allow for new partnerships between researchers and stakeholders.
Cellal e Kisal Programme: reducing maternal, neonatal and child morbidity and mortality in Senegal
La région rurale de Kolda au sud du Sénégal est marquée par des taux de mortalité maternelle et infantile nettement supérieurs aux valeurs nationales en raison du manque d’infrastructures et de personnel de santé.
Par ailleurs, du fait de leur éloignement géographique et du faible niveau d’information dont elles disposent sur les parcours de soins, on constate un faible taux de fréquentation des structures de santé par les communautés isolées de la région.
Cellal e Kisal renforce l’accès à une offre de services de qualité en santé maternelle, néonatale et infantile à travers le développement d’un...
The rural region of Kolda in southern Senegal is marked by maternal and child mortality rates well above national values due to lack of infrastructure and health personnel.
Moreover, due to their geographical distance and the low level of information available to them on care options, there is a low rate of attendance at health facilities by isolated communities within the region.
 
Cellal e Kisal improves access to quality maternal, neonatal and child health services by developing an integrated device using information and communication technologies (ICT).
It is based on several interconnected technologies that promote the identification, referencing and follow-up of pregnant women from registration through the first 2 years of the child’s life (Track-Check-Retain approach):
- A mobile application that allows community contacts to connect with health facilities and provide close monitoring of women and children,
- A telemedicine toolbox at health centres to carry out comprehensive examinations in remote areas,
and the telemedicine platform which links regional hospitals and specialist care services.

Results:
- Deployment of the telemedicine toolbox: 735 pregnant women consulted, 9,899 pregnancies and 67,662 children under the age of 5 registered and monitored via the digital device in 2018.
- More than 70,000 participants combined for behaviour change activities (lower-risk pregnancy, gender approach, etc) through the action of the 80 community contact points trained by Amref (public health NGO in Africa).
- Institution of a cervical cancer component with the equipment of health facilities in the region in screening and cryotherapy units.
The Hauts de l'Orne: a naturally innovative district
Un cadre de vie privilégié à deux pas de la Vallée de l’Orne et de la voie verte, sur un site riche de 7000 ans d’histoire : le futur ÉcoQuartier de Fleury-sur-Orne est actuellement développé par Caen la mer, la commune de Fleury-sur-Orne et Normandie Aménagement. Les travaux sont programmés jusqu’en 2030.

UN QUARTIER VÉGÉTAL
Premier ÉcoQuartier labellisé (étape 2 depuis 2018) à se construire sur Caen la mer, les Hauts de l’Orne offriront à ses futurs habitants, à horizon 2030, un vaste choix de logements individuels, semi-collectifs ou collectifs. Il se situera au cœur de 25 hectares de...
A special place to live just a stone's throw from the Orne Valley and its green way on a site with 7,000 years of history: the future EcoDistrict de Fleury-sur-Orne is currently being developed by Caen la Mer, the commune of Fleury-sur-Orne and Normandie Aménagement (Normandy Development). The work is scheduled until 2030.

A GREEN NEIGHBOURHOOD
The first certified EcoDistrict (stage 2 since 2018) to be built in Caen la Mer, by 2030, the Hauts de l'Orne will offer its future inhabitants a wide choice of individual, semi-collective and collective housing. It will be located at the heart of 25 hectares of natural landscaped parks, ponds, gentle vegetated paths, and very close to shops, services and innovative sports and recreational facilities. Located a 10-minute drive from the centre of Caen, it will be served by the new rail tram from 2019 and benefit from access to a heat network.

AN IN-SITU NURSERY
To produce trees and plants locally, an innovative initiative, unique in France, was proposed by Normandie Aménagement: to set up a nursery directly in the neighbourhood. Located on the last stage of the EcoDistrict, which will not be completed for 10 years, this nursery has been home to all the plants needed for the future landscaping of the district since 2018. In the long run, more than 40,000 plant species will have been grown directly on the site.
Simpa India : commercialisation de kits solaires individuels pour les foyers d’Inde rurale
Créée il y a cinq ans, Simpa est une start-up qui commercialise des solar home systems (kits solaires individuels) auprès de foyers d’Inde rurale (jusqu’ici dans les états de l’Uttar Pradesh, de Bihar et d’Orissa).
Ces kits comprennent un panneau solaire à installer sur le toit, une batterie, des lampes LED, un ventilateur et une télévision.
Les équipements sont vendus via un système de lease-to-own à travers un réseau d’agents commerciaux.
L’acquisition de Simpa par ENGIE constitue un exemple concret du repositionnement qu’ENGIE opère vers des solutions de...
Founded five years ago, Simpa is a start-up that markets solar home systems (individual solar kits) to homes in rural India (so far, in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Orissa).
 
These kits include a rooftop solar panel, battery, LED lamps, fan and television.
 
The equipment is sold via a lease-to-own system through a network of sales agents.
 
ENGIE’s acquisition of Simpa is a concrete example of ENGIE's repositioning towards zero-carbon, decentralised energy service solutions.
 
Today, Simpa has 70,000 customers and 750 employees in 3 states (Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Orissa). Simpa aims to become a key player in decentralised energy in rural and semi-rural India.
 
Lifou Island: roadmap to 100% renewable energy by 2020
L’objectif de ce projet est de réussir à substituer les 2.5 millions de litres de fioul utilisés actuellement pour la production électrique sur l’île de Lifou, en Nouvelle Calédonie par des énergies 100 % renouvelables d’ici à 2020, et faire ainsi de cette île une « vitrine » de la transition énergétique dans le Pacifique.
ENGIE a notamment conçu pour ce projet un schéma directeur énergétique permettant d’exploiter de manière optimale les ressources de l’île d’une part, et d’organiser le partage des services attendus entre la production (énergies renouvelables, gaz…) et le gestionnaire des réseaux d’autre part. Une étude...
This project sets out to successfully replace the 2.5 million litres of fuel oil currently used for electricity generation on the island of Lifou, New Caledonia, with 100% renewable energy by 2020, thus making the island a "showcase" for energy transition in the Pacific.
 
In particular, ENGIE has designed an energy master plan for this project to make the most of the island's resources on the one hand, and to organise the sharing of services expected between production (renewable energy, gas etc) and the network manager on the other.
 
A feasibility study and risk calculation were also carried out to ensure a local, sustainable and renewable energy network.
 
To achieve the target set, the island's energy mix will rely on the development of new capacity in solar (up 5.4 MW), wind (up 0.8 MW) and biofuel (up 1.2m litres), coupled with storage (5 MW).
 
The benefits of this project are threefold, allowing to:
 
  •  Strengthen the territory's energy self-sufficiency,
  • Reduce its carbon footprint,
  • Address intermittency and optimise the penetration of renewable energies within the island’s mix.
New free transport network in Dunkirk: summary of key results
Depuis le 1er septembre 2018, la Communauté urbaine de Dunkerque est la plus grande agglomération européenne à offrir la gratuité du transport en commun 7 jours sur 7 pour tous les usagers.   Chacun peut l’utiliser à sa guise pour ses déplacements professionnels, universitaires ou personnels.
La nouvelle réorganisation du réseau DK’BUS Marine et l’ensemble des aménagements réalisés ont conforté le réseau de transport en commun dans sa fiabilité, fluidité et rapidité.
 
Doté de 5 lignes chrono (C1 à C5) passant toutes les 10 minutes à un arrêt et de 12 autres lignes, le réseau...
Since 1 September 2018, the Dunkirk Urban Community has been the largest European city to offer free public transport 7 days a week for all users. Everyone can use it as they please for their professional, academic or personal travel.
The new reorganisation of the DK'BUS Marine network and all the improvements carried out have improved the public transport network’s reliability, fluidity and speed.
 
With 5 timed lines (C1 to C5) running every 10 minutes at one stop and 12 other lines, the network also offers bus traffic between 5.30am and 10.30pm (Monday to Saturday). An additional service is provided on Fridays and Saturdays to provide late-night journeys to the outer limits of the region.
 
Buses have also become places of community and entertainment and are equipped with wifi and charging stations for mobile phones.
 
To assess the diversity of the effects of being free to use, the VIGS research association in partnership with the local urban planning agency (AGUR), with funding from the Urban Community, conducted an unprecedented in-depth study, both qualitative and quantitative, on the subject.
MobiSan - Digital health notebook
De janvier 2015 à juin 2018 au Burkina Faso, le Gret (ONG internationale de développement) a mis en œuvre le projet MobiSan en partenariat avec Djantoli (association Santé Sud) et deux associations Burkinabès (Apac et ABF Fandima) grâce à un financement de l’AFD (Agence Française de Développement).
Ce projet visait à améliorer le recours aux bonnes pratiques sanitaires et nutritionnelles et aux services de santé materno-infantile par les populations de la province de Gourma.

From January 2015 to June 2018 in Burkina Faso, Gret (an international development NGO) implemented the MobiSan project in partnership with Djantoli (Southern Health Association) and two Burkina Faso associations (Apac and ABF Fandima) with funding from AFD (French Development Agency).
 
This project aimed to improve the use of best health and nutritional practices and maternal and infant health services by people in Gourma province.
Three innovative services based on digital devices and mobile telephony to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of community health missions were deployed:
 
-The Djantoli service: consists of regular home monitoring of children under the age of 5 by health workers, collecting simple health data, its transmission to the health centre, remote medical monitoring by the centre's health workers and call-up of children in case of an alert.
 
-The AlloLaafia service: consists of implementing mobile phone awareness campaigns (SMS) with female, male and parent subscribers from the Fada and Diabo Health District on three health issues: food and health of children under age 2 and their mother, pregnancy monitoring and family planning.
 
-PCIMA-electronic service: Integrated acute malnutrition care service that allows data to be exchanged between community-based health workers (CBHWs) and health centres during screening and monitoring of acute malnutrition cases.
Improving sanitary conditions and preventing water-borne diseases in Burundi
Le projet couvre une commune en milieu péri-urbain : Mutimbuzi, province de Bujumbura rural au Burundi, à l'ouest de la capitale et proche de la frontière congolaise.

Il a pour but d’améliorer les conditions sanitaires des communautés visées et de réduire la propagation des maladies hydriques, telles que le choléra ou la diarrhée. Au-delà de la mise en place d’installations hydrauliques et sanitaires, un réel travail de sensibilisation/éducation comportementale a été développé selon une approche participative intégrale afin de garantir des améliorations à long terme.

The project covers a commune in a peri-urban area: Mutimbuzi, a province of rural Bujumbura in Burundi, west of the capital and close to the Congolese border.

It aims to improve the sanitary conditions of the target communities and reduce the spread of water-borne diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea. Beyond the establishment of hydraulic and sanitary facilities, real work on awareness raising/behavioural education has been developed using a comprehensive participatory approach to ensure long-term improvements.
 
The project has set up the following actions:

- Introduction of a participatory methodology called WAST that raises awareness and provides training in waste management and the right to water, hygiene and sanitation,

- Structuring, legal training and empowerment of the community through the creation and training of Hygiene and Sanitation Committees (HSCs) capable of taking charge, monitoring and evaluating a sanitation service throughout the sector, from construction of infrastructure to the recovery of collected waste (Ecosan latrines),

- Supporting and empowering the municipality through the strengthening of its capacities (awareness-raising and maintenance of works), implementation of communal regulations, the strengthening of synergies with other local, regional and national policies, and the establishment of criteria to respect the right to water and sanitation,

- Ex ante evaluation of innovation in health impacts (village surveys and health centres).
