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.
Valenciennes – Creating the conditions of low-carbon mobility
Orienter les habitants vers une mobilité écoresponsable
Dans la Région Hauts-de-France, au coeur de Valenciennes, sur une île de la rivière Escaut canalisée, s'engage l'aménagement d'un nouveau quartier ayant l'ambition d'afficher zéro émission de CO2. Pour orienter les habitants du quartier vers des mobilités plus durables le nombre de place de stationnement sera limité (une par logement maximum) et des solutions de mobilités complémentaires seront proposées et leur utilisation encouragée (auto partage électrice, co-voiturage, mobilité douces ...). En complément, une réflexion sur la typologie des...
Steering inhabitants toward eco-friendly mobility
 
Within the Hauts de France region, at the heart of Valenciennes and located on an island on the canalised Escaut River, a new neighbourhood is under development, with the ambition to reach zero carbon emission.
 
In order to urge the neighbourhood’s residents to use more sustainable mobilities, the number of parking spots will be limited (maximum 1 per housing unit), and complementary mobility solutions will be offered and encouraged: electric car-sharing, car-pooling, soft mobility...
 
In addition, a reflection on the typology of inhabitants and the resulting housing will be conducted. A balanced mix of young people / seniors / families /CS etc reinforces the ability to optimise the pooling of common equipment.

Emergence and growth of an adapted and resilient housing market Burkina Faso

La région du Nord reste l’une des régions les plus pauvres du Burkina Faso : en 2009, 64,6% de la population régionale vivait en dessous du seuil de pauvreté. En 2014, la situation s’est dramatiquement détériorée, contraignant de nombreuses personnes à migrer, essentiellement vers le Mali ou la Côte d'Ivoire, et à l'intérieur du Burkina de manière saisonnière.
En réponse à cet enjeu et aux difficultés rencontrées par la jeunesse burkinabaise (chômage, manque de formation…), AVN, partenaire de longue date de l’organisation AKGNS (Union Naam de Gomponsom, province de Yako) qui fédère la jeunesse paysanne, a initié une...

The Northern Region remains one of the poorest regions in Burkina Faso: in 2009, 64.6% of the regional population was living below the poverty line.
 
In 2014, the situation deteriorated dramatically, forcing many people to migrate, mainly to Mali or the Ivory Coast, and within Burkina itself on a seasonal basis. In response to this challenge and the difficulties faced by the youth of Burkina Faso (unemployment, lack of training etc), AVN - a long-time partner of the AKGNS organisation (Union Naam of Gomponsom, province of Yako) - which federates the peasant youth, has initiated a collective dynamic aimed at deploying its methodology to Naam Unions, to stimulate the adapted and resilient habitat market in the Sahel.
 
In all, 15 municipalities in the North Burkina region benefited from this initiative, 12 Naam Unions having joined AVN and AKGNS in 2017, followed by the National Federation of Naam Associations and two other unions in 2018.
 
Since then, a programme of deployment on the Northern Region of Burkina Faso is in the process of being set up, through several initiatives and thanks to various financial backers.
The FNGN has also set up an Adapted Support / Housing / Renewable Energies Unit (UA-HA-ER) in charge of supporting the deployment of the Nubian vault market (VN) in the Unions territories.
 
Each of the 15 mobilised Unions, for their part, created an Adapted Housing Commission and appointed a focal point and substitute to take charge of these commissions.
In addition to the FNGN and the 15 affiliated Naam Unions, other partners have joined the project: UBETEC (FNGN Microfinance Institute) and Viim Baoré (FNGN Agricultural Cooperative).
The FNGN and AVN's stated intention is to allow, as time goes on, a maximum number of Naam Unions to join this collaborative dynamic.

Cities and mobilities - Reinventing proximity
Réduire nos déplacements contraints, consommer localement, profiter des services de proximité au sein de son quartier, privilégier les mobilités douces, travailler à distance… transforment nos parcours de mobilité et réinventent notre quotidien en quête de proximité.

C’est dans ce contexte que Bouygues Construction a mené une réflexion ouverte et collaborative  sur la mobilité des biens et des personnes en projetant nos usages et pratiques à horizon 2030.
 
Opérateurs de mobilité, collectivités, institutionnels, entreprises, start-up, sociologues, acteurs de l’immobilier … ont...
Reducing the need to travel, consuming locally, taking advantage of local services in the neighbourhood, favouring soft mobility, working remotely ... they’re transforming our mobility routes and reinventing our daily lives in the quest for proximity.

It’s within this context that Bouygues Construction has conducted open and collaborative reflection on the mobility of goods and people by projecting our uses and practices to 2030.
 
Mobility operators, local authorities, institutions, companies, start-ups, sociologists, real estate players etc contributed to this discussion by sharing their visions and comparing their ideas through a sociological approach combining expert presentations and prospective workshops.
 
Coming from diverse backgrounds, participants all put practices and uses at the heart of the debate to imagine desirable futures of plural mobility in order to meet societal expectations as well as environmental and economic issues.
Passages, transitional spaces for the city of the 21st century
À l’heure où la mobilité est au cœur des questions urbaines, on attend de chacun de nous une compétence accrue de navigateurs connectés, passant d’un mode de transport à un autre, parcourant des distances quotidiennes variées, dans des aires métropolitaines fragmentées par les réseaux, les infrastructures rapides, les zones spécialisées.
 
Les passages, petits espaces de transition, sont des maillons essentiels d’une mobilité durable, indispensables à la qualité de nos déplacements quotidiens et dans la conception d'un système de mobilité intégré. Tunnels, passerelles, escalators, téléphériques urbains,...
At a time when mobility is at the heart of urban issues, each of us is expected to have a heightened knowledge of connected travellers, moving from one mode of transport to another, travelling various daily distances, in metropolitan areas fragmented by networks, rapid infrastructure and specialised areas.
 
These passages, small transitional spaces, are essential links in sustainable mobility, essential to the quality of our daily journeys and in the design of an integrated mobility system. Tunnels, footbridges, escalators, urban cable cars, paths that facilitate the transition between modes, between urban environments...
 
The history and observation of uses show us that they are potential carriers of singular urbanities, atmospheres, activities, qualities.
 
However, these accessibility spaces are often mainly forgotten by the builders of our cities even though they do not require a lot of investment, they should systematically support major development operations - especially the new transport projects - and they offer restorative virtues to the fractures caused by the rapid transport infrastructure and zoning of 20th-century urbanisation.
 
Designing and creating passages means being able to act immediately, locally, and lay the foundations for a larger-scale transformation: "the small scale that changes everything (well, almost)".
 
An international research-action programme (2014-2018) developed in several cities around the world (Tours/Saint Pierre-des-Corps, Shanghai, Toronto, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, Valparaiso, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Santiago de Chile, Bogota, Nantes, Volos, San José, Granada, Algiers, Cotonou, Maputo, Tunis) aimed at putting on the agenda the concrete issue of passages within the regions:
 
  • Professional architectural and urban planning competitions for developing passage projects in 11 cities (Tours/Saint-Pierre-des-Corps, Shanghai, 6 municipalities of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona, Sant Adria del Besos, Toronto, Sao Paulo) which mobilised 270 multidisciplinary professional teams, or about 1000 professionals of forty nationalities,
  • Student workshops with partner universities, and on-site workshops with teams selected during Phase 2 of the competitions,
  • The Passage Manifesto, a call for innovation and guide to promote the design of the mobility spaces of tomorrow, co-produced by the scientific committee, project partners and visitors to the international exhibition.
