Digital transport 4 Africa : une plateforme numérique pour améliorer la mobilité en Afrique
L’Afrique est entrée dans une phase historique de construction rapide de la ville. Des systèmes et infrastructures de transport, qui façonneront le continent pour les années à venir, sont en création.
Rendre ces systèmes de transport sûrs, abordables, accessibles et durables pour tous est indispensable pour des villes africaines vivantes, productives, bas carbone et saines.
La plupart des villes africaines utilisent des modes de transport semi-formels, souvent des minibus, et dont la gestion est dominée par des opérateurs privés fragmentés.

Africa is in a historic phase of rapid city building. It is creating transport infrastructure and systems that will shape the continent far into the future.
Making these transport systems safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable for all is fundamental to livable, productive, low carbon and healthy African cities.
Most African cities rely on some form of semi-formal transport, often minibuses, dominated by fragmented private operators.
These transit systems provide a much needed service for many, at no cost for the city. But these services also bring a host of challenges to cities, contributing to traffic congestion, pollution and poor road safety.
Digital technologies are a tremendous opportunity to address these challenges. Public transport data is currently missing for planning integrated public transport, designing passenger information systems, and working with operators to upgrade transit services. With this, DigitalTransport4Africa was born – an open data and collaborative online platform – which aims to aggregate available data on transports to improve mobility within developing countries.
Réussir la transition numérique des villes du sud
Installé dans la ville de Sémé-Podji au Bénin, Wexity est le premier outil digital spécialement conçu pour les autorités locales afin qu’elles puissent y gérer l’ensemble des objets urbains : réseaux, habitat, environnement, risques, économie locale, équipements… pour servir les besoins d’un développement urbain durable. Aujourd’hui seuls existent des systèmes experts complexes nécessitant du personnel qualifié. Wexity rompt avec cette logique de complexité.

Located in the city of Sémé-Podji in Benin, Wexity is the first digital tool specially designed to enable local authorities to manage all urban objects: networks, housing, environment, risks, local economy, equipment and so on, thus serving the needs of sustainable urban development. Today, only complex expert systems requiring qualified personnel exist. Wexity breaks with this logic of complexity.
Wexity is a modern digital platform, built for shared and collaborative use, designed to be accessible to all audiences within a municipality, from elected officials to senior managers and municipal technicians. We believe that only a solution used and controlled by local users can be sustainable.
Going beyond innovation of use, it is also our ambition to offer a major breakthrough in terms of controlling urban environments. In sub-Saharan Africa in particular, no city has an up-to-date and accurate map of its territory. The establishment of a complete and transversal database is in itself a decisive element for the cities of the South.
Innovation also comes from Wexity's ability to produce pragmatic analyses: how many people live in flood-prone areas? Which equipment is subject to environmental risk? Where are the areas that do not have access to drinking water? Which residential areas are furthest from schools? These are simple, obvious questions that cities are often not able to answer without external advice.
The Toulouse Matabiau EMP thermal and electrical grid (Multimodal terminal): a local energy loop project
Dans le cadre de son  groupe de travail sur les nouveaux outils juridiques pour des projets urbains innovants, l’Institut pour la Ville Durable (IVD), avec l’appui du cabinet  LexCity, a réalisé deux rapports : l’un sur les outils juridiques de la commande publique et un autre sur les outils de droit privé. Ces rapports ont été illustrés et approfondis par des cas d’étude,  proposés par les membres de l’IVD, à partir de  3 thématiques : économie circulaire, mutualisation des usages et des services et boucle locale énergétique.
L’institut de recherche et développement Efficacity, membre de l’IVD,  a ainsi contribué...
As part of its working group on new legal tools for innovative urban projects, the Institut pour la Ville Durable (IVD - Sustainable city institute), with the support of LexCity, has produced two reports: one on legal tools for public procurement and the other on private law tools. These reports were illustrated and further developed through case studies, proposed by IVD members, based on three themes: circular economy, the sharing and pooling of uses and services and a local energy loop.
The research and development institute Efficacity, a member of the IVD, has contributed significantly to this study by proposing the case of the thermal and electrical grid, developed as part of the Toulouse Matabiau multimodal terminal (PEM), to illustrate the theme of the local energy loop tangibly. The project leader, Europolia (SPLA Toulouse Métropole) has entered into an R&D partnership with Efficacity to analyse the various possible energy scenarios. The project consists of considering sharing and pooling solutions, by the implementation of loops based on locally produced energy.
 This case study reviews the different scenarios considered, the problems encountered and the definition of the most appropriate legal structures for the project.
Smart Cities and Territories Platform
Lancée le 22 mai 2019, la Plateforme Villes et territoires intelligents a pour objet de mettre à disposition des collectivités des ressources pour comprendre, agir, et développer progressivement des services. Construite dans une démarche de conception participative et itérative, selon la méthode du « design thinking », elle permet notamment pour les collectivités de s'approprier le sujet, de construire pas à pas une stratégie et de lancer diverses actions. Elle disposera également à terme d’un outil d'autodiagnostic et comprend également un espace dédié à l'Internet des objets, fruit d'un partenariat entre le Cerema et l'Avicca, qui...
Launched on 22 May 2019, the Smart Cities and Territories Platform aims to provide local authorities with resources to understand, act and gradually develop services. Built using a participatory and iterative design approach, using the "design thinking" method, it allows communities to take ownership of the subject, to build a strategy step by step and to launch various actions. It will also eventually have a self-diagnostic tool and includes a space dedicated to the Internet of Things, the result of a partnership between CEREMA and Avicca, which offers a collection of territorial initiatives in metropolitan France and overseas, mapped and classified by the scale of coverage, the network used, thematic and use cases.

Creation of a telehealth medical relay service in an eco-restored barn
La Commune a ouvert un relais de télésanté, lieu innovant de téléconsultations dans un contexte de désertification médicale. Il est installé dans une ancienne grange du centre-bourg, rénovée par la commune, classée B (consommation d’énergie) et recourant à des matériaux bio-sourcés issus de la filière chanvre locale. C’est la première réalisation en France d’un cabinet médical en télémédecine. L’enjeu est de garantir aux patients un accès aux soins facilité, sans rupture de suivi ni de prescriptions.
Innovante et répondant à des objectifs à la fois environnementaux, économiques et sociaux, il semble important pour...
The Commune has opened a telehealth relay, an innovative location offering online consultations in a context of medical desertification. It is located in a former barn in the centre of the town, renovated by the commune, classified B (for energy consumption) and using ecologically sourced materials from the local hemp sector. This is the first project in France of a medical practice using telemedicine. The challenge is to guarantee patients easier access to care, with no interruption to follow-ups or prescriptions. Innovative, and meeting environmental, economic and social objectives, it seems important for the commune to disseminate this intervention, which shows that solutions exist to end medical isolation in rural areas and demonstrates that it is possible to improve people's daily lives through the use of new technologies.
This project is one of the nominees for the 28th edition of the Eco Action Trophies, the leading sustainable development competition for local communities, organised by the Les Eco Maires association.
Greater Paris and tourism
Les outils de l'ingénierie urbaine pour envisager le tourisme comme levier d'attractivité global du Grand Paris
Dans le cadre de la mise en place du Grand Paris, dans ses dimensions de transport (Grand Paris Express) et institutionnelles (Métropole du Grand Paris), ARTELIA s’est interrogé sur les évolutions du tourisme de la première destination touristique du monde en relation avec à la construction métropolitaine. La recherche a permis d’identifier l’impact possible du Grand Paris Express sur l’activité touristique et l’accessibilité des territoires, pour créer des offres innovantes.

Urban engineering tools to put ahead tourism as attractiveness’s opportunity with the Great Paris!
In the context of the implementation of the “Grand Paris” (Greater Paris) project, in particular its transport (Grand Paris Express) and institutional components (Métropole du Grand Paris), Artelia considered the changes in the tourism sector in the world’s leading tourist destination in relation to the development of the metropolitan region. This research pinpointed the potential impact of the Grand Paris Express metro on tourism and the accessibility of the different areas in order to develop innovative transport offerings. Urban projects in the vicinity of the “super metro” stations will provide significant opportunities for development. The institutional changes undergone by the “Métropole” provided insight into the catalysts for developing tourism. These changes bring new opportunities for the tourism and leisure sector, raising the profile of Greater Paris for tourists and local inhabitants alike.
