Planning with nature in the city
Cet ouvrage apporte un éclairage particulier sur la nature en ville, il est centré sur ses effets. A travers un regard pluridisciplinaire, il donne des éléments de compréhension documentés et étayés de chiffres clés sur les effets de la nature en ville, les concurrences et synergies entre phénomènes et les ordres de grandeur des impacts. Les thèmes traités sont en lien avec les leviers de l'aménagement pour des villes et territoires durables.
 
L'ouvrage s'articule en quatorze chapitres, chacun d'eux est fondé sur une idée préconçue et apporte des éléments de compréhension, des phénomènes en jeu et des effets...
This work sheds particular light on nature in the city, focusing on its effects. Through a multidisciplinary lens, it provides documented, supported elements of understanding of key figures on the effects of nature in the city, competition and synergies between phenomena and orders of magnitude of impacts. The themes covered are related to the levers of development for sustainable cities and regions.
 
The book is divided into fourteen chapters, each based on a preconceived idea that brings elements of understanding, phenomena at stake and the effects (environmental, health and/or economic) of nature in the city.
Preconceived ideas focus on the effects of nature in the city on biodiversity, air quality, soil quality, sound environment, water management, thermal comfort, greenhouse gas concentration, food, the attractiveness of urbanised spaces and the economic approach. Aimed in particular at the technical services of communities and complementary to the guidelines also proposed for nature-friendly development in the city, it gives the ADEME view of the impact of nature in the city for various issues related to urban planning.
Food and agriculture: recommendations for a sustainable and relocated food system
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.
 
Dans un contexte où l’urbanisation et la croissance démographique, l’utilisation des ressources, la qualité de l’air, de l’eau et des sols sont autant de facteurs qui interrogent le système alimentaire actuel, il apparaît...
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.
 
 In a context where urbanization and population growth, the use of resources, the quality of air, water and soil are all factors that question the current food system, it seems necessary to consider production and consumption models more respectful of the environment and health. Acting on the food system therefore supposes developing a transversal reflection integrating economic, social, environmental, health, educational, as well as cultural or urban aspects.
 
Faced with a globalized food system, the alliance of territories and the mobilization of local authorities and all citizens are key conditions for the transition to a more sustainable food and agricultural model. However, to that end, agriculture and food issues need to be thoroughly rethought and transition strategies need to be implemented. It is with this in mind that the "Food and Agriculture" working group met, in order to make sustainable food a pivotal point in the development of territories by relying on the relocation of the food system.
ArboClimat: the urban tree as a tool to combat climate change
L’arbre urbain est un formidable outil de lutte contre le changement climatique puisqu’il permet à la fois d’atténuer l’impact du volume d’émission de gaz à effet de serre des activités anthropiques de la ville, mais aussi de réduire l’effet de l’Îlot de Chaleur Urbain (ICU), voire de créer un Îlot de Fraîcheur Urbain (IFU). La Région Hauts de France et l’ADEME ont souhaité outiller les collectivités, les aménageurs, les gestionnaires de patrimoine arboré etles élus pour leur fournir un outil leur permettant de réaliser des scénarios de plantation et d’en évaluer l’impact sur la séquestration du carbone et sur le climat urbain...
The urban tree is a great tool to combat climate change as it both mitigates the impact of greenhouse gas emission from the city's anthropogenic activities, as well as reducing the effect of urban heat islands (UHIs), even creating urban cool islands (UCIs). The Hauts de France Region and ADEME wanted to equip communities, developers, tree heritage managers and elected officials to provide them with a tool to carry out planting scenarios and assess their impact on carbon sequestration and the urban climate.

This tool allows you to:

- Assess the impact of existing tree heritage,
- Understand the impact of a planting scenario on carbon storage and UHI control,
- Select species according to several indicators and not just the impact on carbon or UHI control.
Eco-construction of a wooden-made and bioclimatic operations building at Aubevoye’s water treatment plant

Aubevoye’s water treatment plant meets the requirements of the innovative HQE process, offering a bioclimatic operations building with a Douglas pine tree wooden frame.
The natural and high performance materials used enable a safe, comfortable and long-lasting construction which is also positive-energy thanks to a photovoltaic roof. The building is oriented on a North/South axis, benefiting from an optimal sunshine over the winter, while in summer the heat is dissipated thanks to the dual-flow ventilation system and the sun-breaker devices on the roof.
The building is integrated within an eco-landscaped site which fosters the development of biodiversity.
Caen, nature city
A dix-huit kilomètres de la mer, à la confluence entre l’Orne et de l’Odon, Caen s’affirme comme une ville entre mer et nature.
Structurée par un fleuve côtier partiellement canalisé, la ville fut fortement marquée au nord par l’industrie métallurgique, tout en préservant au sud l’accès direct à la nature par sa vaste prairie inondable qui pénètre au cœur de la ville.
Aujourd’hui connue pour sa plaine agricole et la qualité de sa pierre calcaire, Caen puise en réalité son identité dans les cours d’eau et les prés normands, ce qui en fait une ville naturellement structurée par sa trame verte et bleue. Par sa...
Eighteen kilometres from the sea, at the confluence of the Orne and the Odon, Caen is most definitely a city between sea and nature.
Structured by a partially channelled coastal river, the city was heavily affected to the north by the metallurgical industry, while preserving to the south direct access to nature by its vast flood meadow that goes right into the heart of the city.
Today known for its agricultural plain and the quality of its limestone, Caen actually draws its identity from Normandy’s rivers and meadows, making it a city naturally structured by its green and blue corridors.
With its greenspace policy and its work to preserve ecological continuity, Caen has outpaced legal expectations for promoting biodiversity, nature and landscapes.
Smartseille, the eco-neighbourhood of the future to live in the present
La Ville de Marseille et l’établissement public Euroméditerranée réalisent dans les quartiers nord de la ville la plus grande opération de rénovation urbaine d’Europe du Sud. C’est dans ce cadre que "smartseille", le projet d’écoquartier conçu par Eiffage, a vu le jour : 58 000 m2 ont été construits sur 2,7 ha en associant harmonieusement logements, bureaux et services tout en offrant des logements et des bureaux à des prix accessibles et un accès aisé à toutes les nouvelles technologies.

Cet écoquartier du XXIe siècle apporte aussi à ses habitants comme à ses usagers le meilleur du développement durable :...
The City of Marseille and the Euroméditerranée public institution are carrying out the largest urban renewal operation in Southern Europe in the northern districts of the city. It is within this context that "smartseille", the eco-neighbourhood project designed by Eiffage, was born: 58,000 m2 were built on 2.7 hectares by harmoniously combining housing, offices and services while offering housing and offices at affordable prices and easy access to all new technologies.

This 21st century eco-neighbourhood also provides its inhabitants and users with the best sustainable development: supply of renewable energy, eco-design of buildings adapted to the Mediterranean environment, a mix of functions, urban agriculture.

With great technical ambition and with the help of Orange Business Services, smartseille promotes urban digital transformation and responds to new lifestyles and ways of working. Technology is not an end in itself but a means to make accessible innovative services that simplify the lives of residents, promote the development of social ties and encourage the sharing of resources: e-concierge, dynamic signage, interactive terminals, shared car parks. A web and mobile portal serves as a platform for interaction between residents.
"Water and Biodiversity: A winning pair to adapt to climate change"
En juin 2018, le Cerdd organisait en partenariat avec l’Agence de l'Eau Seine Normandie, l’ADOPTA, l’ADEME et le Conseil Régional Hauts-de-France (FEDER), une demi-journée d'information et d'échanges afin de renforcer les connaissances et d’améliorer la prise de conscience des acteurs sur les enjeux et solutions « eau, biodiversité et climat », mais aussi de contribuer à leur outillage sur ce sujet.
Afin de capitaliser sur les messages principaux de l'atelier Cerdd (Centre Ressource du Développement Durable), une nouvelle ressource a vu le jour Cette publication du Cerdd sur le sujet de l'adaptation au changement...
In June 2018, Cerdd organised, in partnership with the Seine Normandy Water Agency, ADOPTA, ADEME and the Hauts-de-France Regional Council (FEDER), a half-day of information and discussion to strengthen knowledge and improve stakeholder awareness on the issues and solutions around "water, biodiversity and climate", as well as contributing to their tools on this matter.
To capitalise on the main messages of the Cerdd workshop (Sustainable Development Resource Centre), a new resource has emerged. This Cerdd publication on the subject of adapting to climate change, thanks to solutions based on nature, is a concentration of information to understand the issues, take inspiration and embark on more virtuous projects!
Energy transition and urban planning video: how to move towards sustainable cities?
Croiser les enjeux de l’environnement, du climat, de l’énergie et des réseaux avec les politiques de l’urbanisme, de la mobilité et de l’habitat est essentiel pour construire des projets de territoires durables. L’aménagement des territoires est le levier le plus efficace pour réussir la transition énergétique dans la mesure où il impacte directement la demande en énergie.
 
Il peut par exemple créer des villes dépendantes de la voiture et très minéralisées, ne permettant pas de réguler les températures, ou tout au contraire des villes économes et résilientes offrant un cadre de vie attractif à leurs...
Combining environmental, climate, energy and network issues with urban planning, mobility and housing policies is essential for building sustainable regional projects. Land use is the most effective lever for successful energy transition as it directly impacts energy demand.
For example, it can create car-dependent, highly concrete cities which do not regulate temperatures, or, on the contrary, economical, resilient cities offering an attractive living environment for their inhabitants.
Thus, a well-organised region, sufficiently dense which makes the most of its local resources, can at the same time reduce its energy needs, produce its own energy and adapt to the climate of the future. The urban planning code now offers opportunities that communities can seize on.
This video, produced by Agam and DREAL Provence Alpes-Côte d'Azur, in association with the region's technical services, is a relevant way of presenting legal levers and making them possible by local examples of successfully integrating the energy transition into urban planning. Elected officials, experts and planning stakeholders, it's up to us!
The Hauts de l'Orne: a naturally innovative district
Un cadre de vie privilégié à deux pas de la Vallée de l’Orne et de la voie verte, sur un site riche de 7000 ans d’histoire : le futur ÉcoQuartier de Fleury-sur-Orne est actuellement développé par Caen la mer, la commune de Fleury-sur-Orne et Normandie Aménagement. Les travaux sont programmés jusqu’en 2030.

UN QUARTIER VÉGÉTAL
Premier ÉcoQuartier labellisé (étape 2 depuis 2018) à se construire sur Caen la mer, les Hauts de l’Orne offriront à ses futurs habitants, à horizon 2030, un vaste choix de logements individuels, semi-collectifs ou collectifs. Il se situera au cœur de 25 hectares de...
A special place to live just a stone's throw from the Orne Valley and its green way on a site with 7,000 years of history: the future EcoDistrict de Fleury-sur-Orne is currently being developed by Caen la Mer, the commune of Fleury-sur-Orne and Normandie Aménagement (Normandy Development). The work is scheduled until 2030.

A GREEN NEIGHBOURHOOD
The first certified EcoDistrict (stage 2 since 2018) to be built in Caen la Mer, by 2030, the Hauts de l'Orne will offer its future inhabitants a wide choice of individual, semi-collective and collective housing. It will be located at the heart of 25 hectares of natural landscaped parks, ponds, gentle vegetated paths, and very close to shops, services and innovative sports and recreational facilities. Located a 10-minute drive from the centre of Caen, it will be served by the new rail tram from 2019 and benefit from access to a heat network.

AN IN-SITU NURSERY
To produce trees and plants locally, an innovative initiative, unique in France, was proposed by Normandie Aménagement: to set up a nursery directly in the neighbourhood. Located on the last stage of the EcoDistrict, which will not be completed for 10 years, this nursery has been home to all the plants needed for the future landscaping of the district since 2018. In the long run, more than 40,000 plant species will have been grown directly on the site.
Caen Peninsula: reconquering a territory
Le projet urbain Caen Presqu’île offre de nouvelles perspectives à l'aire de Caen la mer. Quartiers durables, circulations douces, ambiance fluviale, environnement végétalisé, activités économiques, culturelles et sportives…promettent un cadre et une qualité de vie inégalée.
Les communes de Caen, Mondeville et Hérouville Saint-Clair, la Communauté Urbaine Caen la mer, la Région Normandie et le syndicat mixte des Ports de Normandie, travaillent conjointement depuis 2010 à la mise en œuvre d’un projet de renouvellement urbain ambitieux sur le site de la Presqu’île, structurant pour le territoire.
Le projet urbain...
The Caen Peninsula urban project offers new perspectives to the area of Caen la Mer. Sustainable neighbourhoods, soft transport modes, river atmosphere, green environment, economic, cultural and sporting activities all promise an unrivalled environment and quality of life.
 
The municipalities of Caen, Mondeville and Hérouville Saint-Clair, the Caen la Mer Urban Community, the Normandy Region and the Normandy Ports Joint Union have been working together since 2010 to implement an ambitious urban renewal project on the site of the peninsula, which is structuring for the region.
 
The Caen Peninsula urban project covers an operational perimeter of 300 hectares. The member communities of the order group agreed in 2016 on the need to set up a Major Interest Project (MIP), a memorandum of understanding created by Law No. 2014-366 of 24 March 2014 for access to housing and renovated urban planning provided for under Articles L.350-1 to 7 of the Urban Planning Code. The content of the MIP identifies the four structuring urban development projects currently in progress or planned for the future whose aim is to renew the strategic sector of the peninsula in an ambitious and sustainable way:
 
- The Peninsula Point
- La Nouveau Basin joint development zone in Caen
- The Hérouville peninsula JDZ
- The Calix JDZ in Mondeville
