Eco districts : an anlysis of brakes and levers in their distribution[Research paper] by Clémence Chouvet

2007-12-05

The author was part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC Paris in 2006/2007.

Eco districts are a new way of developing cities to reduce the effect of greenhouse gases, promote the economy and social cohesion for a more sustainable development. These districts show that it is possible to consider town planning in a different way from previous times. Their distribution is however limited in France. The most advanced countries have already experienced such ideas and they developed new tools: new methods of town planning and new financing which will help firms and decision-makers to employ such approaches. At the same time, new models to promote the designation of these areas are still being developed. The following work discusses these new tools and those which are still to be implemented.
