Training of professionals in the urban planning, construction and building sector to the challenges of energy transition

27 - 31 March 2017 in Lomé (Togo)

Presentation

The built environment (building and cities), at the heart of the challenges facing our societies, is at the center of the desired changes. Cities now house more than 50% of the world’s population, consume 2/3 of the world’s energy and contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. This energy is largely used for mobility and comfort needs in buildings (offices and housing). The construction and building sectors accounts for 40% of the total energy consumed and about 35% of greenhouse gas emissions. These trends should continue and even strengthen. Indeed, by 2050, 75% of the world’s population will live in cities.

The development choices that will be made today at this level, their spatial organization and how they will be implemented, will determine the quantity and quality of energy to be provided to meet the enormous challenges of access to health services in the cities, be they small, medium or large. The urban space brings together integrated systems, organized according to complex schemes and of very varied nature depending on whether one considers infrastructures, equipment and activities generating goods or services or the satisfaction of the essential needs of a geographically concentrated population. The aim is to guarantee access to water, energy, a suitable transport network, quality housing, food, health, education, security, a sewage and waste management network, a healthy environment, a sufficient number of healthy and decent jobs, social equity and more personal notions such as well-being or happiness.

These systems are interdependent and this is particularly evident in the case of transport networks, water management, energy distribution and communication networks, and it is therefore important to underline the need A holistic approach to the city both in analyzing the challenges it faces and in responding to them.

These responses, of a varied nature, are decisive as to the content and the direction to be given to the energy transition. Professionals in urban planning and urban management and the construction and building sectors are the main architects of the choices to be made and the answers to be given so that cities can fully play their role in this transition.

Objectives

The module of Training of professionals in the urban planning, construction and building sector to the challenges of the energy transition is part of the Francophone Initiatives for the promotion of sustainable cities in Africa carried out by the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF) through its subsidiary body, the Institut de la Francophonie pour le développement durable (IFDD), and its partners.

It is carried out at the initiative of the IFDD and the African Crafts School of Architecture and Urbanism (EAMAU) in partnership with the association ENERGIES 2050.

The aim of the training course is to develop a good mastery of the challenges to be met and the strategies and actions to be implemented by architects, urban planners and urban managers as well as by the various public or private professionals in activity or training concerned with these themes to build or renovate buildings, urban infrastructure and facilities and, in general, cities meeting the demands and challenges of the energy transition.

It is about to provide these professionals with the keys to understanding and taking into account the challenges of energy transition (universal and equitable access to energy services, reducing the risks of climate change through energy sobriety, energy efficiency and renewable energies…) in their professions. The goal is also to identify strategies, tools, techniques and methods for integrating these issues so that everyone can adapt their professional practices accordingly and act in favor of improving the living environment in better live together in a sustainable environment.

The training is based on two complementary axes:

  • Theoretical contributions completed and illustrated by concrete cases
  • A real application project realized by each of the participants and tutored by members of the teaching team
