Based on the analysis of the 39 French EcoQuartier labelled operations in 2013, 2014 and 2015, located in most of the major French regions, Cerema's publicaton "EcoQuartiers, what lessons can be learned?" aims to overcome preconceived ideas and develop collective representations. What is really new in these projects? What is the difference between a 1970s or 1980s development project and today’s so-called "sustainable" urban projects?
The 32nd issue of the National Federation of Urban Planning Agencies (FNAU), “The stakes of overseas planning” is the result of a collaboration between the three overseas urban planning agencies and the FNAU.
Published following the seminar of directors of urban planning agencies held in Martinique in October 2013, this issues reviews the stakes of planning in the specific context of overseas territories. It inlcudes sections on natural risks, economic models, mobility iessues and natural heritage etc.
Produced by Cap Digital at the end of 2016, this prospective report highlights a whole series of questions, concerning the disinterest of the citizens for the public thing, their mistrust toward those who embody it, resulting in low voter turnout and polarization towards extremes.
The TCO tropical island ecocity is the largest of 31 ecocities in France and the only one located overseas. The ecocity is a pioneer and demonstration of the 21st Century sustainable city. It represents not only the creation of a new city but also the renewal of established urban areas. Artelia’s integrated urban engineering method will contribute to this project by optimising the necessary elements for way of life, time management and governance. The ecocity is located on 5,000 ha of land.
This tool was commissioned by the City of Villiers-le-Bel from the urban innovation hub “Genre et Ville” (“Gender and City”) in order to design housing policies that fight against the reproduction of social structures. The study thus benefited from the support of the ANRU within the framework of the first axis of the Investment for the Future program: “sustainable and supportive city”. It aims to support project leaders in taking equality into account, and more specifically, gender equality in project management, as well as to promote French and international best practices in this field.
A reference framework, composed of 17 goals divided into 4 commitments, has been defined in order to help project owners, local authorities and developers to build their construction or infrastructure renovation projects while taking sustainable development challenges into account.
This guide provides operational examples and, in this way, proposes to break down each of the 17 goals into 4 commitments and different themes, whose application depends on the type of infrastructure, as follows:
Commitment: Responsible Management
Corri-door is the network of fast charging stations of Ivizia, a subsidiary of the EDF Group, which enables electric vehicles to travel many kilometres throughout France. Corri-door charging stations are installed every 80 kilometres on highways, are compatible with all brands of electric vehicles and recharge up to 80% of their autonomy in 30 minutes. This universal recharge service is powered solely by renewable energy sources and uses cutting-edge technology to improve network coverage across the country.
The Santiago Deseado 3D simulator, which was handed over to the Municipality of Santiago in June 2015, is a decision-support tool to aid the formulation of sustainable urban policies. Financed by the French government and created by a consortium of companies headed by Artelia, it compiles a large quantity of data on water and waste management, public infrastructure, transportation, the social distribution of inhabitants, telecommunications, etc. to form an interactive map.
SUEZ is fully committed to upholding the right to water and sanitation. The Group works with local authorities to advance three objectives: improving access to services in disadvantaged areas, ensuring long-term water access for people in precarious situations, and providing access to essential services and collective sanitation for all.
A center for mobility or mobility agency is one of the tools of transport management in a territory. It supports changes in travel habits of the population, by offering multimodal information to transport users, as well as advice and mobility services. The center for mobility or mobility agency can also carry out local events, network actors and operators of mobility services of the territory. It can also support a local authority in its mobility policy.
