In the context of accompanying the City of Paris in its mid-way assessment of the 2015-2020 City Contract, Apur has drawn up a description of the how things are evolving in the neighbourhoods of the Paris City Urban Policy (priority neighbourhoods and secondary priority neighbourhoods) and has built a frame of reference enabling the initiatives put in place to be measured. With 367,000 inhabitants, these neighbourhoods represent 17% of the Parisian population spread over 12% of the territory (1,276 hectares). This considerable amount of work was made possible thanks partly to the data collected and analysed over the past 15 years by the Observatory of Parisian Neighbourhoods of the City Policy, which is run by Apur.  

The work carried out is organised into two volumes:

Volume 2, which is accessible on this page, presents the assessment frame of reference organised under three thematics: 

  • Growing up: education, youth, parenting;
  • Work: employment and economic development;
  • Dwelling: living environment and urban renewal. 

For each thematic the main priority objectives are presented as defined by the City Contract partners, as well as associated initiatives, the expected results and indicators enabling the implementation of initiatives and their impact to be assessed.

The document explains the approach chosen for constructing the reference framework and defines a method for gathering data to be set up in order to measure the progress made up until the end of the City Contract.

Defining the assessment tools is essential to enable initiatives underway in priority neighbourhoods to be carried out while abiding by common law and the specific requirements of the City Policy. Implementation of the assessment frame of reference implies mobilising all the partners involved throughout the time of the contract to ensure that precise and useful information is available to everybody.
