Cities & Climate Change « project » in Bogota

In March 2016, the French Development Agency (AFD) asked Cerema to take part in the « Cities & Climate Change » technical seminars, organised in partnership with the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF). Cerema presented on the context and French initiatives in this field, as well as the services and tools developed to tackle these challenges.

Yaoundé Coeur de Ville Project in Cameroon

In 2019, Cerema undertook a study on behalf of the French Development Agency (AFD) as part of the « Yaoundé Cœur de Ville » project, whose aim was to improve traffic and mobility within the city. The study focused on road safety within the redevelopment of three major crossroads.

Road Safety Project in Madagascar

On behalf of the French Development Agency (AFD), Cerema delivered an engineering project in Madagascar, ensuring that road safety was incorporated into the ring road development in Antananarivo, which would bypass the east and north-east of the city. 

AFD Cerema framework agreement

The Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and Cerema have signed in 2020 a framework contract to strengthen the expertise provided on official development assistance projects supported by France.
