Projet MADRE "Agriculture métropolitaine pour le développement d'une économie innovante, durable et responsable"
MADRE est un projet européen de coopération territoriale (Interreg MED), qui vise à changer le modèle d’approvisionnement alimentaire métropolitain en capitalisant sur les bonnes pratiques existantes, en responsabilisant les différents acteurs de l’agriculture métropolitaine et périurbaine, et en initiant une dynamique de coopération transnationale dans le secteur agricole de la région MED.
 
Considérée comme un phénomène émergent, l'agriculture métropolitaine permet de relever plusieurs défis urbains en contribuant à la sécurité alimentaire, à la création d'emplois, à la qualité de l'environnement...
MADRE is a European territorial cooperation project (Interreg MED), which aims to change the metropolitan food supply model by capitalising on existing good practices, by empowering the different stakeholders in metropolitan and peri-urban agriculture, and by initiating a dynamic of transnational cooperation in the MED region.

Considered as an emerging phenomenon, metropolitan agriculture makes it possible to meet several urban challenges by contributing to food security, job creation, environmental quality or strengthening social ties and territorial solidarity between urban and rural areas. The MADRE project capitalises on a set of knowledge, policies and pilot actions carried out on the topic and activates existing networks to enable effective transnational cooperation in the Mediterranean.
 
The objectives are:
- To improve the innovation capacity of metropolitan agriculture in the Mediterranean territories;
- To identify and evaluate the economic, environmental and social performance factors of metropolitan agriculture;
- To identify and network metropolitan agriculture stakeholders;
- To assess the feasibility, conditions and means of creating a transnational cluster of actors in metropolitan agriculture.

The project was carried out from February 2017 to July 2018, with a total budget of € 1,173,175, co-financed by the Interreg MED programme.
 
The emergence of a transnational cluster is supported by a multidisciplinary partnership from 5 countries. Each partner representing a flagship metropolitan area, AVITEM (Agency for Sustainable Mediterranean Cities and Territories) is representing France.
The Covenant of Mayors in Sub-Saharan Africa
La Convention des Maires en Afrique Subsaharienne (CdM ASS) est une initiative financée par l’Union Européenne (UE) pour soutenir les villes d’Afrique Subsaharienne dans leurs efforts de lutte contre le changement climatique à travers un engagement volontaire. Elle est basée sur l’approche bottom-up et permet aux villes/communes de définir et d’atteindre des objectifs ambitieux et réalistes, conformément à la méthodologie de la Convention des Maires.
 
L’objectif principal de la CdM ASS est d’accroître les capacités des villes d’Afrique Subsaharienne à fournir à leur population urbaine et...
The Covenant of Mayors in Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA) is an initiative founded by European Union (EU) to support Sub-Saharan Africa cities in their fight against climate change through a voluntary commitment.It is a bottom-up initiative that allows cities to define and meet ambitious and realistic targets set by themselves in line with the covenant methodology. The main objective of the Covenant of Mayors in Sub-Saharan Africa is to increase the capacities of cities to provide access to sufficient, sustainable and safe energy related services to urban and peri-urban populations (especially the poor), with special attention to energy efficiency and renewable energy as drivers for local low emission, climate resilient, sustainable development.
 
CoM SSA initiative has three pillars that are:
 
- Access to energy: physical availability of sustainable, clean and reliable energy services to meet basic human needs at affordable costs;
- Mitigation: actions undertaken to reduce the emission of the greenhouse gases and their concentrations in the atmosphere;
- Adaptation: actions undertaken to anticipate the adverse effects of climate change, prevent or minimise the damage they can cause, or take advantage of opportunities that may arise.
Urban Resources Management : making smart choices for the evolution of the city
The URM approach aims to provide territories foresight and potential local opportunities identification to give decision-makers comprehensive and geo-localized evidence about anticipated and possible future change in resources consumption and needs, houses to renovate or build, citizens to host.

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.
Ces systèmes de transport en commun...
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.
Storm drainage and geographic information service project in the Douala urban community (Cameroon)
Depuis 2015, la Ville et l’Eurométropole de Strasbourg associées à GESCOD (Grand Est Solidarités et Coopérations pour le Développement) et leurs partenaires collaborent avec la Communauté urbaine de Douala dans le cadre de la construction-rénovation de 47 km de drains pluviaux, afin de renforcer les capacités de maîtrise d’ouvrage et de gouvernance locale dans le domaine de l’assainissement urbain. Cette AMO (Assistance à la Maîtrise d'Ouvrage) soutient également la création d’un système d’information géographique (SIG) servant d’appui technique au projet de drainage. Les questions sanitaires liées aux déchets et aux eaux usées autour...
Since 2015, the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg, in association with GESCOD (Grand Est Solidarités et Coopérations pour le Développement) and their partners, have been working with the Douala Urban Community on the construction and renovation of 47 km of storm drains, to strengthen their project management and local governance capacities in the field of urban sanitation.
This AMO (Assistance to the Contracting Authority) is also supporting the creation of a Geographic Information System (GIS) to provide technical support for the drainage project.
Health issues related to waste and wastewater around storm-water disposal have been included in the remit of the project. To strengthen technical capacities in the field of sanitation and hydraulic expertise, a management training programme has been set up in partnership between ENGEES (Ecole Nationale du Génie de l'Eau et de l'Environnement de Strasbourg) and the Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) de Douala.
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.

Wexity est une plateforme digitale moderne, construite pour un usage partagé et collaboratif, conçue pour être accessible à tous les publics d’une...
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.
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.
Tools for development website

Le site « Outils de l’aménagement » s’adresse en priorité à des élus locaux, des techniciens de collectivités locales et aux autres acteurs de l’aménagement, auxquels il apporte des informations sur les outils et les méthodes principalement dans les champs du foncier, de l’urbanisme opérationnel et réglementaire, de l’environnement et de l’habitat. Il constitue une base de données techniques de plus de 250 outils accessibles selon 7 thématiques principales et près de 35 problématiques opérationnelles, pour ainsi répondre aux principaux questionnements des acteurs du territoire.

The "Tools for development" website is intended primarily for local elected officials, technicians from local authorities and other stakeholders in development, to whom it provides information on tools and methods mainly in the fields of land, operational and regulatory urban planning, the environment and housing. It constitutes a technical database of more than 250 tools accessible according to seven main themes and nearly 35 operational issues, thus answering the territory's stakeholders' most pressing questions.
BIM urbain - Valorisation multi-échelles des données urbaines
Développer une stratégie de valorisation des données « BIM urbain » : l’avatar numérique de la ville au coeur d’un processus multi-échelles allant du BIM bâtiment au BIM territorial, industrialisant l’usage de la donnée autour de services tiers. Cette démarche ouvre une nouvelle dimension dans la gestion et la visualisation des données territoriales. L’approche multiéchelles permet de mieux percevoir l’environnement urbain, appréhender l’intégration des bâtiments à des environnements complexes (smart grids et éco-quartiers) et croiser les données (échelle urbaine et bâtiment). L’approche multi-domaines permet de modéliser la gestion...

Developing an “Urban BIM” data valorisation strategy: the digital avatar of the city at the centre of a multi-scale process, ranging from building BIM to territorial BIM, industrialising the use of data around third-party services. This approach opens up a new dimension in the management and visualisation of territorial data. The multi-scale approach helps us to better conceive the urban environment, understand the integration of buildings into complex environments (smart grids and eco-districts) and cross-check data (urban and building scale). The multi-domain approach enables the modelling of estate management, socio-demographic data, data on transport and networks.
