Sustainable City by France documents
The Sustainable City by France hub has been designed as a toolbox and a useful showcase for all sustainable-city professionals.
This digital tool aims to be supplemented by a series of themed “Sustainable City by France” documents, presented in the form of interactive PDFs linking to the portal and available in a printable version.
These documents are designed to provide international professionals with information on the French vision and approach to each topic, highlighted by examples of key public policies and enriched with operational solutions and methodologies carried out by French experts and companies.
These documents are produced and updated with the support of the French Ministry for Ecological Transition and Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, and are shared with foreign delegations interested in the French expertise on sustainable and resilient cities, as well as on professional events abroad.

French Partnership for the City and Territories (PFVT) resources
Started in 2011, the French partnership for cities and territories (PFVT – Partenariat Français pour la Ville et les Territoires) is a close partner of Sustainable City by France.
While SCbF is considered a support tool to promote the French expertise and know-how in the field of sustainable and resilient cities (in a “do-tank” and economic diplomacy approach), the PFVT coordinates French advocacy and positioning, mainly in the context of UN forums and in support of institutional diplomacy efforts.
To that end, the PFVT is responsible for leading workshops, bringing together more than 200 actors so as to prepare French contributions to the World urban Forums – Sustainable City by France is actively participating to these works, as it coordinates the working group on resilience.
The 11th session of the World Urban Forum is taking place from 26 to 30 June 2022 in Katowice, Poland, under the banner “Transforming cities for a better urban future”. For this 11th session, the PFVT has chosen a working methodology for the 2021-2022 workshops based on a prospective approach. Projecting into the world of tomorrow allows us to anticipate increasingly recurrent, systemic, urban and globalized crises. Indeed, today’s crises are global and show us that it is necessary to renew and reaffirm solidarity, on a local and international scale, for sustainable, inclusive and resilient urban futures.
