The Urban Climate Challenge: Getting French cities on board with the Paris Agreement targets

The Urban Climate Challenge: Getting French cities on board with the Paris Agreement targets

In July 2018, WWF France published a study entitled “The Urban Climate Challenge: Getting French cities on board with the Paris Agreement targets”.

The study, a collaborative project with EcoAct, highlights the responsibility of French cities in terms of climate change, their commitment to this front, and proposes local targets, inspired by the Paris Agreement, for France’s ten largest cities.

Launching of the new research project Quartier E+C-: Positive and low-carbon energy development operations

Launching of the new research project Quartier E+C-: Positive and low-carbon energy development operations

The consortium federating the CSTB, Elioth, l’Alliance HQE-GBC, Efficacity, Effinergie, Certivéa, l’Association BBCA and Atlantech recently won the call for research projects during ADEME’s 4th edition of: «Towards responsible buildings before 2020».

 

Quartier E+C-, the winning project, aims to develop and test a carbon energy assessment method at the neighbourhood level.

 

The project will revolve around three stages:

Advanced Solutions for stormwater

Advanced Solutions for stormwater

Urbanization continues to reduce the ground’s natural ability to absorb rainwater, increasing the volume of stormwater collected and evacuated by wastewater systems. In a heavy storm, stormwater runoff can overwhelm wastewater system capacity, causing urban flooding and saturating treatment plants. Increasingly untreated stormwater is being discharged directly into the natural environment and becoming a source of pollution. Today it is crucial that cities integrate stormwater management into their urban planning. That’s why SUEZ developed Advanced Solutions for stormwater.

CheckMyCity – Digital maturity diagnosis

CheckMyCity – Digital maturity diagnosis

CheckMyCity enables a city’s digital maturity to be assessed and the level of harmony between services offered to citizens and the DNA and political priorities of the local authority to be highlighted. This diagnosis makes it possible to quickly identify new ideas for services and directions for digital development. It is a tool designed to support reflection and decision making.

ASSETS OF THE DIAGNOSIS

A corpus of more than 300 questions on 18 themes covering the city’s jurisdiction as a whole.

A 360-degree view of the city’s digital development.

Challenges to urban resilience: solutions for cities and territories

Challenges to urban resilience: solutions for cities and territories

Engie has been involved in urban and territorial resilience challenges for several years. Through its expertise, deployed all around the world in favour of sustainable development and decentralised, autonomous, decarbonised and digitalised devices, the group has demonstrated its legitimacy to build ever-more resilient ecosystems - among other things, through contributing to the resilience strategy of the City of Paris, or participating in workgroups on the subject at the highest level on a regular basis within the OECD.
