Using the ISO 37101 sustainable city management method
Un travail associant 51 pays a permis de définir une méthode de définition et de mise en œuvre de stratégies urbaines intégrées, robustes et agiles : la norme de management ISO 37101, publiée en 2016.
 
La méthode internationale ISO 37101 est un instrument de management puissant qui permet de maximiser les retombées d'un projet politique de développement territorial durable.

A l'échelle d'un projet, elle permet de renforcer la vision stratégique du projet, et favorise la collaboration et l'engagement des équipes. A une échelle élargie, elle facilite les échanges d'expériences...
Work involving 51 countries has led to the definition of a method to define and implement integrated, robust and agile urban strategies: the ISO 37101 management standard, published in 2016.
 
The international ISO 37101 method is a powerful management tool that maximises the benefits of a sustainable regional development policy project.

At the individual project level, it reinforces the strategic vision of the project and promotes collaboration and commitment among teams. On a broader scale, it facilitates the exchange of experience through a shared vocabulary and common methods.

The Ministry of Ecological Transition supports the use of this method by national and local institutions as evidenced by the EcoCité approach, which aimed in 2018 to conduct an experiment to use ISO 37101 with 5 pilot ÉcoCités, with a view to designing training in the integrated management of sustainable urban projects.
 
Agency 360 provides:
 
  • a project management assistance mission for the ministry (with XN Conseil, Neoclide, Efficacity and CEREMA),
  • uses it on a daily basis on its urban design and project management missions, within its training (engineering and management of smart cities in Bridges and Roads),
  • and participates in the development of this method within the national commission for sustainable and intelligent cities and regions (CNVTDI) of AFNOR (French Standards Association).
Douala Sustainable City: Sustainable development and enhancement of the Makèpè-Missoké neighbourhood
Le projet Douala Ville Durable concerne l’aménagement du quartier Makèpè – Missoké, situé sur une ancienne décharge en zone inondable. La visée principale, définie dans la continuité du projet de drainage pluvial et en cohérence avec la politique de la ville, est de faire de Douala une ville durable et résiliente, tout en assurant son développement économique.
Dans cette perspective, un projet de restructuration et de valorisation de la zone humide et de lutte contre la pauvreté a été mis en œuvre par la Communauté Urbaine de Douala. Les efforts déployés pour préserver les espaces verts et les ressources naturelles ont...
The Douala Ville Durable project concerns the development of the Makèpè - Missoké neighbourhood, located on a former landfill site in a floodplain area.
The main objective, defined in the continuity of the rainwater drainage project and in line with the city's policy, is to make Douala a sustainable and resilient city while ensuring its economic development.
With this in mind, a project to restructure and enhance the wetland and combat poverty has been implemented by the Douala Urban Community.
 
Efforts to preserve green spaces and natural resources are thus aimed at transforming this floodplain into an asset for the development of the neighbourhood:
- on the one hand, by making the site a "green lung" to combat heat islands,
- on the other hand, by generating economic activities such as market gardening, recycling or even home renovation.
 
This project was designed to be replicable: a piece work of capitalising on knowledge and experience is therefore planned to disseminate it on similar sites successfully.
Intercommunal governance in the field of water and sanitation in Cameroon
Disposant d’une multiplicité d’équipements, les communes du Mbam et de l’Inoubou connaissaient de profondes difficultés en termes de maîtrise d’ouvrage en eau et en assainissement, principalement des problèmes de rénovation, d’entretien et de gestion des infrastructures. Pour y faire face, plusieurs communes avaient décidé de mettre en commun leurs moyens et de définir une stratégie départementale de l’eau et de l’assainissement. Ce projet a été lancé dans le but d’accompagner la structuration d’un service public.
Afin de développer une approche partenariale efficiente, les acteurs ont choisi de constituer un syndicat...
With a wide range of facilities, the communes of Mbam and Inoubou faced major difficulties in terms of water and sanitation project management, mainly problems of renovation, maintenance and infrastructure management. To deal with this, several communes had decided to pool their resources and define a departmental water and sanitation strategy.
This project was launched with the aim of supporting the structuring of a public service. To develop an efficient partnership approach, the stakeholders chose to form an intercommunal union (SYCOMI), thus bringing legal innovation in Cameroon.
This union then took responsibility for the technical and administrative aspects, which is why training was provided to strengthen the skills of the key players. Emphasis was also placed on citizen participation through the involvement of user committees and willingness to pay for studies to ensure the sustainability of the service. This experience of intercommunal governance is a pilot project in Cameroon, which has aroused the interest of Cameroonian institutional bodies and is now spreading.
The communes in Lékié were inspired by this to create their own union (SYNCOLEK), with the support and expertise of SYCOMI and SDEA (Syndicat Départemental des Eaux et de l'Assainissement Alsace-Moselle) to develop a public water and sanitation service in their turn.
Territorial heritage in the pipeline
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 cinquième numéro aborde la question de la prise en compte du patrimoine dans une société urbaine, mobile et mondiale.

Le patrimoine est aujourd'hui partout, au fondement même de l'identité des territoires. Aménager l'espace en préservant le "déjà-là" est une préoccupation croissante des...
FNAU Points is a collection of works on urban planning designed by urban planning agencies to invent, through a mix of thought-provoking lines and concrete examples, the city of tomorrow. These works are intended for education and clarification on major subjects related to planning the region.
 
This fifth issue addresses the issue of heritage consideration in an urban, mobile and global society.

Heritage is today everywhere, at the very foundation of regional identities. Developing the space while preserving the "already there" is a growing concern of citizens, relayed by their elected officials.
 
As a result, the notion of heritage has expanded over the past fifty years, from the exceptional object to the landscape incorporating natural and built spaces on vast scales.

The development and transmission of this regional heritage is the work of a long-term project, led by elected officials, residents, technicians and associations. And to support their efforts, special partners in the shape of urban planning agencies intervene with a single objective: to project around regional heritage in a relationship that’s calmed and adapted to the lifestyles of today.
 
Exploring the evolution of the concept of heritage since its origins, this publication, provided with a chronology, presents the current issues of regional heritage and explains the contribution of urban planning agencies through a wide selection of concrete cases and projects in France and abroad.
 
Impact'Climat
L’ADEME a développé un outil pédagogique et simple afin que les collectivités puissent entamer leur réflexion sur l’adaptation au changement  climatique, à travers la réalisation d’un pré-diagnostic de vulnérabilité.
 
Cet outil est constitué d’un fichier Excel où l’utilisateur renseigne des données et visualise des résultats relatifs aux impacts du changement climatique et à la vulnérabilité du territoire, et d’un guide d’accompagnement permettant de comprendre l’utilisation du fichier Excel.

ADEME has developed a simple educational tool so that communities can begin thinking about adapting to climate change by carrying out a pre-diagnosis of vulnerability.
 
This tool consists of an Excel file where the user inputs data and visualises results relating to the impacts of climate change and regional vulnerability, and an accompanying guide to understand how to use the Excel file.

This tool is a device to assist the project manager in structuring an approach and initial thoughts on adapting to climate change: it is intended to carry out a pre-diagnosis by completing a comprehensive overview of all vulnerabilities that may affect the region or skills of a community, without conducting an in-depth study of each sector. The tool helps adapt to different community contexts, regardless of their geographical location or major economic activities in the region, and complements the themes that the community wishes to study.

Energy-climate consultation
Ce carnet « La concertation énergie-climat » a pour objectif de donner les clés nécessaires à la mise en œuvre d’une démarche participative dans les projets énergie-climat des collectivités : plans climat-air-énergie territoriaux, lutte contre la précarité énergétique, installations d’énergies renouvelables – chaufferies, unités de méthanisation, éoliennes... –, stratégies locales de développement des filières, etc..
 
Qu’est-ce qu’une démarche de concertation ? Quand et pourquoi la mettre en œuvre ? Dans quel cadre réglementaire s’inscrit-elle ? Après avoir examiné ces questions fondamentales, cet...
This "Energy-climate consultation" paper aims to provide the necessary keys to implementing a participatory approach in communities’ energy-climate projects: regional climate-air-energy plans, the fight against energy insecurity, renewable energy facilities (boilers, methanisation units, wind turbines, etc.), local strategies for sectoral development etc.
 
What is a consultation approach? When and why to implement it? What is its regulatory framework? After examining these fundamental issues, this paper continues with the practical aspects of the initiative, using a step-by-step phased approach from the preparatory phase (expression of need, background study, strategy, mobilisation plan) to realisation (management techniques, meeting formats, stances etc) and, finally, the exercise of restitution and evaluation of the approach.
French aid for local public project management
Cette publication du PFVT propose les grandes orientations françaises sur le renforcement de la maîtrise d'ouvrage publique locale, élément clé pour la planification de villes durables.
 
A l’aire des processus de décentralisation et de métropolisation, la France défend dans ce document le renforcement de capacités des autorités locales. Plus précisément, il traite du rôle clé de la maîtrise d’ouvrage locale pour l’élaboration d’une vision partagée du territoire et une planification stratégique qui répondent aux grands enjeux territoriaux, à savoir : le développement économique, l’accès aux services...
This publication by the PFVT sets out the main French guidelines on improving local public project management, a key element for the planning of sustainable cities.
 
In this document, France defends the capacity building of local authorities in the area of decentralisation and metropolisation processes. Specifically, it addresses the key role of local project management in developing a shared vision of the region and strategic planning that address major regional issues: economic development, access to basic services and decent housing for all. This means including everyone in participatory processes, which must be systematically organised in the development of regional strategies, thus enabling a comprehensive, regional, cross-cutting approach connected to social realities.
 
The text also mentions many other levers to activate so that local authorities can fully fulfil their role as project owner: providing capacities at regulatory, institutional, technical and financial levels.
