PFVT – The French Alliance for Cities and Territorial Development

The French Alliance for Cities and Territorial Development

The French Alliance for Cities and Territorial Development (PFVT) brings together French urban cooperation actors: the State, public institutions, regional authorities and elected representatives’ associations, professionals, businesses and consultancies, research and training organizations and non-governmental organizations;

It is co-chaired by Yves Dauge, a former senator and Deputy Mayor of Chinon; the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE); the Ministry of Regional Equality and Housing (METL); and the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy (MEDDE).

The PFVT is committed to working for more inclusive and sustainable cities and territories through:

• an integrated approach: local economic development, social inclusion, functional diversity and preservation of the environment;

• support to urban governance processes which adopt partnership-based public action processes centered on local authorities, involving civil society and private partners in particular.
