Support to intercommunal governance in Maevatanana (AGIM, Madagascar)

Le projet AGIM, porté par l’ l’Organisme public de coopération intercommunale de Volamena (OPCI) (Madagascar) en coopération avec le Syndicat intercommunal d’alimentation en eau potable d’Ensisheim-Bollwiller, et la ville de Marckolsheim(France) a pour objectif de professionnaliser et autonomiser l’OPCI afin de l’aider à assurer seul son fonctionnement et son équilibre financier, notamment via :
- l’amélioration de ses capacités institutionnelles, techniques et de gouvernance locale,
- le développement local participatif,
- l’optimisation de la gestion de la gare routière.

The AGIM project, supported by the Volamena Public Cooperation Organisation (OPCI) (Madagascar) in collaboration with the Ensisheim-Bollwiller Intermunicipality Water Supply Syndicate and the city of Marckolsheim (France), aims at professionalising and empowering the OPCI, to help it ensure its independent functioning and financial balance, in particular through:
 
- improving its institutional, technical and local governance capacities;
- participatory local development;
- optimising management of the bus station.
 
 
Administratively, the OPCI has simplified the system of tax collection by setting up a tax database and tax notification system. A reform and decentralisation of land services have also been implemented at the inter-municipal level: land registration via the PLOF (local land-use plan), increased municipal revenues through the creation of land counters and collection of rights.
 
The OPCI's technical department has also worked on the training of elected officials and technical staff, thus strengthening the governance models of the inter-municipality.
Thanks to a high level of traffic, the fees of the inter-municipal bus station pay more than half the costs of the STI (intercommunal technical service) and thus allow the OPCI to go even further in financial autonomy.
The bus station also improves accessibility of the crossroads city of Maevatanana, helping unclog the city’s roads.
“Grenelle des Mobilités” in the Bordeaux metropolitan area
Un sentiment partagé dans l’agglomération bordelaise et le besoin de changer le modèle de mobilité.
 
Face à ce constat, les principaux acteurs des politiques de mobilité (les quatre collectivités locales et l’Etat) ont décidé en 2012 de lancer le « grenelle des mobilités métropolitaines », une démarche originale de débat et co-construction associant les représentants de l’Etat et des collectivités territoriales, des employeurs, des salariés, des syndicats des experts et des associations d’usagers.
 
Au total, 120 participants se sont réunis en différents groupes de...
A shared feeling in the Bordeaux metropolitan area is the need to change the mobility model.
 
Faced with this fact, the main players in mobility policies (the four local authorities and the State) decided in 2012 to launch the "Grenelle Metropolitan Mobility" initiative, an original approach to debate and co-construction involving representatives of the State and regional authorities, employers, employees, expert unions and user associations.
 
A total of 120 participants met in different working groups. Within this configuration, each partner had to be represented at all meetings by the same person: the process of co-building proposals for actions was also a process of joint learning.
 
All this work resulted in the formulation of 17 measures for fluid, reasoned and regulated mobility.
 
In 2018, during the mid-term review for implementing the charter's actions, it was decided to restart 6 priority projects. Each of these projects will be led by an elected official from the metropolis to allow faster progress in implementation.
 
  • Project 1/ Cars done differently, car-pooling, smart bypass.
  • Project 2/ Access to jobs, lifestyle and work patterns.
  • Project 3/ Universal pedestrian mobility and the school run without cars.
  • Project 4/ Great metropolitan avenues.
  • Project 5/ Urban deliveries.
  • Project 6/ Supra-metropolitan public transport network.
FNAU Points No.1 - The metamorphoses of the urban highway
Points FNAU est une collection d’ouvrages sur l’urbanisme pensés par les agences d’urbanisme pour inventer, entre pistes de réflexion et exemples concrets, la ville de demain. Ces ouvrages sont à vocation de pédagogie et d’éclairage sur des grands sujets liés à l'aménagement du territoire.
 
Ce premier ouvrage porte sur la requalification des autoroutes urbaines.
 
Longtemps synonymes de progrès, les autoroutes sont désormais source de congestion et de nuisances pour les deux millions de Français vivant à proximité immédiate, suscitant nombre de réflexions quant à leur...
 
This first work deals with the re-qualification of urban highways.
 
Long synonymous with progress, motorways are now a source of congestion and nuisance for the two million French people living in their immediate vicinity, prompting much consideration about their re-qualification.
 
This work looks back at the history of urban highways, the legacy of the automobile city now undergoing metamorphosis, and highlights the achievements and projects in progress, strong and symbolic projects which take into account changing mobility, health, landscape, environment and urban quality.
 
Rethinking urban highways now means reconsidering them within a cross-sectional view of the regions, in order to reduce their nuisance and impacts on the environment (noise, pollution, congestion), to relieve them, and to better integrate them into increasingly sustainable cities.
 
This document sheds light on the changing comprehension of these infrastructures, which must therefore be adapted to the current needs of cities and their inhabitants, both in France and abroad.
Smart City Directory - Mobility and Parking
Le rapport au transport change, la mobilité est dorénavant vécue comme un service – avec des transports collectifs nombreux et à la demande – ce qui enrichit nos choix. Les villes intelligentes, ou en passe de le devenir, vont donc devoir relever de nombreux défis autour de la mobilité.
 
Les entreprises référencées « Mobilité et stationnement » dans l’annuaire Smart City de la Banque des Territoires proposent par exemple :
  • De l’information sur les transports en commun et individuels de la ville directement sur smartphone via un...
Our relationship with transport is changing, and mobility is now seen as a service - with numerous on-demand public transport options - to enrich our choice. Smart cities, or those that are about to become so, will therefore have to face many challenges around mobility.
 
Companies labelled "Mobility and Parking" in the Smart City Directory of the Banque des Territoires (Bank of the Regions) offer, for example:
Public and private city transport information directly via smartphone using a multimodal route planner and traffic forecasting;
Easier car sharing with a carpool system;
Optimised parking by dematerialising parking management and control with a sensor system;
Encouraging soft mobility by developing cycling, a link between individual and collective transport.
The Smart City Directory of the Banque des Territoires lets you discover the solutions of companies which work in the field of the smart city. This directory aims to bring together all the players in the city of tomorrow by linking local public players on the one hand and companies offering innovative regional services in the different sectors of the city on the other. Companies are invited to present their innovative offers here.
