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.

Improvement of sanitation and waste management in Mahajanga
Les projets Assainissement et déchets à Mahajanga (ASSMA et suivants) s’inscrivent dans une logique d’appui aux autorités communales locales afin de renforcer leur capacité en termes de maîtrise d’ouvrage, par la formation et la réalisation d’investissements pilotes.
Ce renforcement de la gouvernance locale a contribué à la structuration d’une plateforme multi-acteurs de la filière intégrant les organisations de la société civile, sur le modèle de partenariats publics-privés.
En parallèle, la Commune Urbaine de Mahajanga a développé un plan stratégique d’eau et d’...
The sanitation and waste projects in Mahajanga (ASSMA and following) are part of a logic of support to the local communal authorities, in order to reinforce their capacity in terms of project management, through training and the realisation of pilot investments.
This strengthening of local governance contributed to the structuring of a multi-stakeholder platform for the sector, integrating civil society organisations, on the model of public-private partnerships. At the same time, the Mahajanga Urban Community has developed a strategic water and sanitation plan and updated its health regulations with a view to improving public health.
Since 2013, the implementation of this project has led to the establishment of a complete sanitation chain, combined with increased access to basic sanitary facilities (family latrines and sanitary blocks). Through awareness-raising and education, behaviours have evolved towards better hygiene, as evidenced by the epidemiological monitoring carried out.
In addition, this initiative paved the way for two other projects that have improved the management of household waste, notably through the material support provided to pre-collectors, the rehabilitation of certain access roads and the maintenance of municipal trucks.
Ecomairie – the first online recycling centre !
Initialement lancé sur le périmètre de la Communauté Urbaine de Dunkerque, Ecomairie est un outil numérique permettant aux particuliers d’un même territoire de donner ou vendre un objet dont ils ne se servent plus avant qu’il ne devienne un déchet et finisse par être jeté.
Conçu comme un site internet de proximité entre particuliers permettant le don et la vente d’objets non utilisés et voués à finir en déchetterie, Ecomairie est désormais déployé auprès de nombreuses collectivités en France.
Le dispositif permet d’aider les territoires dans la réduction des coûts liés...
Initially launched on the perimeter of the Urban Community of Dunkirk, Ecomairie is a digital tool allowing individuals from the same region to give or sell an object which they do not use any more before it becomes surplus to requirement and ends up being thrown out.
Conceived as a website of proximity between individuals allowing the donation and sale of unused objects, doomed to end in the waste, Ecomairie is now deployed in many municipalities in France.
This device helps regions reduce the costs entailed by waste processing and create a local network bringing many stakeholders together (social and solidarity economy structures, social housing providers, repairers, cultural stakeholders…).
Limours living lab – the Smart City showcase for rural and peri-urban towns
Les factures eau, gaz, électricité font partie des principaux postes de dépenses des communes notamment de taille moyenne. La baisse des aides de l’Etat les incite à trouver des moyens afin de mieux maîtriser ces consommations, sans procéder au renouvellement complet des parcs, mais en installant des capteurs sur des compteurs existants.
Limours, commune de 6700 habitants située dans l’Essonne, a souhaité mettre en place la solution O-CELL permettant la visualisation au quotidien des consommations de ses bâtiments communaux, sans toutefois investir dans une solution coûteuse à installer et à...
Water, gas and electricity bills are among the main items of expenditure for municipalities, particularly those of medium size. The decline in state aid encourages them to find ways to better control such consumption, without proceeding to the complete renewal of their infrastructure, but by installing sensors on existing meters.
Limours, a municipality of 6700 inhabitants located in Essonne (France), wanted to set up the OCELL solution allowing the daily visualisation of the consumptions of municipal buildings, without investing in an expensive solution to install and maintain facilities maladapted to the needs of a small peri-urban municipality.
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.
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.

Sur le plan administratif, l’OPCI a...

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.

Implementation of geographic information solutions for Lyonnaise des Eaux Casablanca
Le projet concerne le déploiement d’une solution d’informatique et d’information géographique de très grande envergure avec un niveau d’exigence à la hauteur des enjeux des missions confiées à la LYDEC.
En effet, depuis le 1er août 1997, la LYDEC, filiale de Suez, assure pour une durée de 30 ans la gestion déléguée de la distribution d’électricité, d’eau potable et du service d’assainissement pour plus de 4 millions d’habitants de la Région du Grand Casablanca.
LYDEC compte 3 250 employés avec un Chiffre d'Affaires de 375 millions d’euros. En 2007, LYDEC a choisi Altereo pour la fourniture et le déploiement d...
The project concerns the deployment of a very large-scale IT and geographical information solution with a level of requirements that matches the mission challenges entrusted to LYDEC.
Since 1 August 1997, LYDEC, a subsidiary of Suez, has been providing delegated management of electricity, drinking water and sanitation services for more than 4 million inhabitants of the Greater Casablanca Region for a period of 30 years.
LYDEC has 3250 employees with a turnover of 375 million euros. In 2007, LYDEC chose Altereo to supply and deploy GIS applications for Water, Sanitation, Electricity and Public Lighting in fullweb mode.

It is the largest business GIS on the African continent with 600 users and a seamless migration from the legacy system.
Implementation of a GIS to modernise drinking water management in Nha Trang city
Nha Trang, ville balnéaire extrêmement touristique, est la capitale de la province de Khanh Hoa. Ce projet a lieu dans le cadre du mémorandum, signé en juin 2007 par les gouvernements français et vietnamien, pour promouvoir la coopération technique et technologique entre les deux pays.
Le projet doit conduire à l’amélioration de la performance du service d’eau potable, à la fois dans l’exploitation quotidienne et dans la gestion à long terme de ses réseaux, à travers la création d'une cellule opérationnelle pour l'exploitation du Système d'Information Géographique (SIG).
Nha Trang, an extremely touristy seaside town, is the capital of the province of Khanh Hoa. This project is organised as part of the memorandum signed in June 2007 by the French and Vietnamese governments to promote technical and technological cooperation between the two countries.
The project should lead to an improvement in the performance of the drinking water service, both in its daily operation and in the long-term management of its networks, through the creation of an operational unit for managing the Geographic Information System (GIS).
The deployment of GIS will lead to economic gains in the management of the service, in particular through:
· Improved service operation, thanks to a precise knowledge of the infrastructures;
· Better control of leaks and network performance;
· Optimised network extension or renewal investments, thanks to the development of an asset strategy.
This project thus helps modernise the management of services and moves the governance towards financial independence, service performance and responsibility towards users, as called for by the Vietnamese government in its two decrees of 2007.
This mission consisted of a detailed study which helped establish an optimised network renewal programme. The study was based on the application, for the first time on the Asian Continent, of the exclusive "SIROCO" methodology and expert system, a product of Altereo's innovation.
International Chapel in Paris: a multimodal logistics hotel
30 territoires engagés dans la démarche EcoCité bénéficient du soutien du Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir Ville de Demain géré par la Banque des Territoires pour le compte de l’Etat.
5 M€ ont été investis dans le cadre de ce programme au service d’un hôtel logistique multimodal à Paris.
Conçu afin d’optimiser l’arrivée des marchandises aux portes de Paris et leur redistribution dans la capitale, l’hôtel logistique est constitué d’un terminal ferroviaire urbain. Les marchandises arrivent par train et sont ensuite déchargées et livrées dans Paris par des véhicules...
30 regions involved in the EcoCité approach receive support from the Avenir Ville de Demain investment programme managed by the Banque des Territoires on behalf of the State.
€5 M were invested in this programme for a multimodal logistics hotel in Paris.
Designed to optimise the arrival of goods at the gates of Paris and their redistribution in the capital, the logistics hotel consists of an urban rail terminal. Goods arrive by train and are then unloaded and delivered in Paris by low-polluting vehicles.
The twice-daily link from upstream platforms should help avoid the movement of 80 000 heavy goods vehicles per year on the Ile-de-France road network.
The 45 000 m2 intramuros site also devotes 12 000 m2 to tertiary areas and hosts a business incubator dedicated to sustainable logistics and mobility, higher education institutions and training centres. 10 000 m² of roof space are also devoted to urban agriculture.
