The Covenant of Mayors for Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA) is a European Union-funded initiative to support cities in sub-Saharan Africa in their fight against climate change and their efforts to ensure access to clean energy for their people.

It has several objectives:

- Strengthen the capacity of cities to develop and use planning and implementation instruments in the fields of energy, mobility and urban planning,
- Improve the legal and institutional framework of local authorities and their technical and resource mobilisation capabilities,
- Promote political ownership and dissemination of best practices.

The first two phases of the initiative have built a strong network of cities committed to the fight against climate change, with 178 signatory cities and municipalities. The third phase will allow cities to develop their Sustainable Energy and Climate Access Action Plans (SECAAP), implement energy access, climate change mitigation and adaptation projects, and also strengthen partnerships between cities and regions.
The spatial and energy impact of data centres on regions
Le projet de recherche ENERNUM donne une image du paysage des data centers en France et dans trois territoires des États-Unis, représentant chacun des situations spatiales et énergétiques différentes (ville dense, espace périphérique, rural). Facteur potentiel de déséquilibre des systèmes énergétiques locaux, objets dont l'accumulation urbaine et la dispersion rurale questionnent, les data centers font ici l'objet d'une analyse approfondie pour mieux appréhender les nouveaux territoires numériques en construction, les solidarités énergétiques à construire et les alliances d'acteurs à mettre en place.

The ENERNUM research project gives an image of the data centre landscape in France and three regions of the United States, each representing different spatial and energy situations (dense city, peripheral space, rural). A potential factor in the imbalance of local energy systems, objects which urban accumulation and rural dispersion bring into question, data centres are the subject of an in-depth analysis to better understand the new digital regions under construction, energy solidarity to create and stakeholder alliances to be put in place.

The report addresses three issues:

- energy conservation and the use of renewable energies;
- integration of data centres into local systems through mutualisation, exchange, connections and less infrastructure redundancy;
- architecture and spatial integration of infrastructure within cities and regions.
 
The research offers up elements to understand, get to grips with and decode both the data centre object, as well as its interactions with the environments into which it fits in its architectural and urban dimensions, in relation to energy, economic and governance issues.

“Essential services”: recommendations for a more sustainable and inclusive city
Ce document présente les grandes recommandations élaborées par les membres du Partenariat Français pour la Ville et les Territoires (PFVT), plateforme d’échanges et de valorisation de l’expertise des acteurs français de l’urbain à l’international. Ces documents sont préparés à l’occasion du Forum Urbain Mondial d’Abu Dhabi de février 2020 et du Sommet Afrique-France de juin 2020.
 
Centré sur l’accès à l’eau potable, à l’assainissement et à l’hygiène de l’eau, la gestion des déchets urbains solides et l’accès à l’énergie, le groupe de travail « Services essentiels » questionne la notion même d’accès...
This document outlines key recommendations formulated by the members of the French Alliance for Cities and Territorial Development (PFVT), the platform for exchange and promotion of French expertise in urban development at the international level. These documents were prepared in the context of the World Urban Forum taking place in Abu Dhabi on February 2020 and the Africa-France Summit on June 2020.
 
Focusing on the access to drinking water, sanitation and water hygiene, solid urban waste management and access to energy, the “Essential services” working group questions the very concept of access to essential services. This notion is not limited only to technological aspects but invites to question broader issues of governance and social inclusion, taking into account local, national or even international economic contexts, public and private policy strategies, or training and innovation.
 
This working group thus chose to prioritize access to essential services for local actors and residents, which brings about a more inclusive and sustainable city. Within this framework, the themes of sustainable development, the fight against the negative impacts of climate change, the feasibility of programs and projects, and the capacity for replication for the greatest number were addressed, and are considered paramount for the implementation of targeted projects.
