Artificial soils and soil artificialisation processes: causes, impacts and levers of action

Artificial soils and soil artificialisation processes: causes, impacts and levers of action

This study was carried out in December 2017 by the French Ministry of the Environment, the ADEME, and the French Ministry of Agriculture and Food to address the challenge of soil artificialisation. Public authorities have therefore requested the joint scientific expertise of IFSTTAR and INRA to put forward a review of available scientific knowledge on the causes and consequences of soil artificialisation, as well as the levers of action that make it possible to limit its expansion and/or environmental impacts.

Optimising the local energy mix in planning and development

Optimising the local energy mix in planning and development

The series of workshops organised by GRDF and the ADEME was an opportunity to mobilise more than fifty actors in planning and development to collectively reflect on these issues, target obstacles to action, identify courses of action and set priorities. This document summarises the main collaborative proposals put forward by the participants. The 9 proposals detailed here confirm that, despite emerging initiatives and best practices, expectations and needs persist.

Challenges: the cities of tomorrow? Containing urban sprawl and rethinking the city

Challenges: the cities of tomorrow? Containing urban sprawl and rethinking the city

ADEME’s practical handbook « Challenges: the cities of tomorrow? Containing urban sprawl and rethinking the city” analyses the impact of urban sprawl on living conditions and the environment. It also identifies examples of innovative urban solutions to make cities more accessible and sustainable while curbing their sprawl. For an ecological management of space, 10 examples of sustainable urban development are illustrated in this guide.

Successful sustainable planning

Successful sustainable planning

The guide “achieving sustainable planning” proposes a methodology and thematic knowledge base for carrying out a sustainable urban planning project. The purpose of the technical guidebook “AEU2- Ecosystems within territories” is to help stakeholders in urban planning and development projects to integrate biodiversity, soils and natural spaces etc. into their projects at different territorial levels. This handbook offers a method and support tools for project implementation and evaluation, based on the Environmental Approach to Urban Planning 2 (AEU2).

City of smart, digital territories

City of smart, digital territories

The smart city and the digital transition are a way for urban planning agencies to rethink their philosophy of action, their missions and the evolution of their businesses to guide the transformation of the territories in they work. The National Federation of Urban Planning Agencies (FNAU) has therefore devoted a major part of its 2017-2018 action agency to developing digital technology. A survey of the urban planning agencies was conducted in early 2017 to better understand the actions and territorial strategies employed.

Circular economy: let’s take the lead!

Circular economy: let’s take the lead!

In January 2018, AdCF devoted the special feature section of its monthly review “Intercommunalités” to the circular economy. It explores the potential of this new model of sustainable development on a territorial scale: industrial ecology, financing and profitability, leverage of public procurement etc. All the challenges of the sector for local authorities are addressed and illustrated by concrete projects implemented by local council communities.

Designing a dense, sustainable and desirable city

Designing a dense, sustainable and desirable city

This l’ADEME guide is partly based on the results of the “Densities and Urban Forms” study carried out in 2016 by Franck Boutté Consultants and Futuribles for the Agency. It proposes elements of analysis and levers to link density and urban form in the face of challenges posed by the ecological and energy transition. It is intended for all urban planning stakeholders as well as local government elected officials, in order to expose the dynamics at work and propose ways to continue the transition of territories towards a more sustainable and desirable development model.

Muse, an urban space management platform

Muse, an urban space management platform

The city is a territory where infrastructures, equipment and urban services form an urban heritage at the disposal of its inhabitants. The Muse platform designed by Citelum, a subsidiary of the EDF Group, makes it possible to identify, locate and audit a city’s heritage for a better optimisation of its use. It is a collaborative platform that develops four axis:

Knowledge of city’s infrastructures: heritage inventory, creation of identification cards by equipment, geolocation and activity history.
