The Salon des Maires et des Collectivités Locales, which has been held in partnership with the AMF for nigh on 20 years, in conjunction with the Congrès des Maires de France and the Congrès des Présidents d'intercommunalité, is the event that draws the largest number of elected representatives and local and regional stakeholders, all of whom manage and develop local and regional affairs on a daily basis.

BRGM will be participating in order to meet its local partners to whom it provides input for shaping public policies.

INEC has carried out a study with Capgemini to investigate the low-carbon transition and critical mineral and natural resources up to 2050. It reveals that the National Low Carbon Strategy (SNBC - Stratégie Nationale Bas Carbone), France's roadmap for decarbonisation, does not take sufficient account of the resource constraints on its implementation, especially in the context of a linear economy system. This year, INEC launched a follow-up to the study, entitled "SNBC sous contrainte de ressources" (SNBC under resource constraints). The aim of this second study is to analyse six resources that are essential to the French economy, the existing sustainable solutions and the obstacles they face. The aim is to come up with a strategy for the measures to be taken, in conjunction with sectoral stakeholders, to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. At this conference, INEC will announce the release of the study in February and the six resources studied.

Climate change is accelerating, and the consequences for our coastal regions are obvious: rising sea levels, coastal erosion and increasingly violent storms. These phenomena jeopardise our infrastructures, our local economies and our citizens' quality of life. Technologies, particularly satellite data, can provide us with essential information for understanding and anticipating changes to our coastal regions.

  • Organised by CNES
  • With the participation of Gilles Grandjean, Programme Director for natural risks and regional resilience at BRGM

Risk Management and Regional Resilience Lab - Pavilion 4 - Wednesday 22 November 2023 - 2 pm - 2.30 pm

Extreme phenomena, the consequences of climate change, are now well understood: droughts, heat waves, erosion, floods, coastal flooding, etc. On each occasion, violent episodes that are more and more frequent leave scars on our lives and regions, becoming ever more costly in terms of damage and the economic impact. Relatively light structures such as houses and roads, built on clay soils that are highly deformable and susceptible to shrinkage and swelling, suffer more damage from drought. What are the prevention methods and remedial solutions for reducing the vulnerability of buildings to RGA and making them more resilient to the impact of climate change?

In October 2022, Géorisques began its first phase of development, with the aim of raising awareness of major-risk prevention among individuals and local authorities. Now, in November 2023, the Géorisques website is taking this approach one step further by revamping the "Risks near me / Risks in my municipality" report and developing the site's editorial content.

The management of excavated soil has been subjected to a number of regulatory changes in recent months, with the deployment of several tools designed to facilitate the monitoring of flows and enable them to be traced (RNDTS, TERRASS) and to encourage their re-use through a circular economy approach. The aim of the conference is to make it easier for local and regional authorities and public contracting authorities to adopt this approach.

  • Organised by BRGM
  • Panel moderator: Samuel Coussy, expert in excavated soil management, BRGM

Speaker: Noémie Dubrac, expert in excavated soil management, BRGM
