This datavisualisation accompanies the study “A fresh look at the Parisian metropolis through its quality of life”, which was undertaken by Apur in collaboration with Insee Ile-de-France and published in July 2015.
Quality of life in the Parisian metropolis can be measured using the individual characteristics of the inhabitants (income, housing and employment conditions…) together with other criteria relevant to living conditions in the territories, such as environment, transport and access to leisure facilities. 24 indicators covering eleven aspects of quality of life have revealed the strengths and weaknesses of the territories.
For the anniversary of the Malraux Act, the Canavalet Museum is mounting an exhibition explaining the policies affecting the architecture and heritage of the Marais which in 1964 was the subject of the first Protection and Restoration Plan-Plan de Sauvegarde et de Mise en Valeur-(PSMV).
The decision-makers, developers, elected representatives, architects, planners and residents tell their stories about the challenges, successes and setbacks in the fortunes of this iconic Parisian neighbourhood. Which protection and restoration projects were the most important? How did the inhabitants view Le Marais at the time of the second PSMV vote in December 2013?
Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris and President of the International Association of French-speaking Mayors (AIMF), met Socheatevong Pa, Governor of Phnom Penh on Friday, 10 October, 2015, to discuss cooperation between the two cities. Since 1993, Paris has supported the process of urban development of the Cambodian capital, which today has become a rapidly-expanding metropolis. Within the framework of its partnership programme, Apur has dedicated itself to international decentralised cooperation activities working together with the City of Paris General Delegation for International Relations (DGRI) and in cooperation with the French Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs and the French Development Agency. Between 1992 and 2009, Apur regularly lent its expertise to the City of Phnom Penh and its administration in the areas of urban management, policies for the development and restoration of the urban and architectural heritage, methodological support and training sessions for the creation of a traffic management plan for the city centre. These decentralised cooperation programmes between the cities of Paris and Phnom Penh supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, have produced four publications coordinated and published by Apur, which bear witness to 20 years of collaboration between the technical teams of the two cities. The following are the publications Apur has brought out within the framework of its cooperation with Phnom Penh:
