Commuting to and from dense urban centres is often believed to be more energy efficient than commuting from more suburban areas. However, quantitative evidence is lacking. In this context, this paper investigates the interactions between the spatial structure of the territory and transport energy consumption for commuting. Based on empirical surveys carried out every 10 years in Belgium, a quantitative method was developed and applied to assess energy efficiency of home-to-work and home-to-school travels. Our main findings highlight that urban structure acts upon travel energy consumption for commuting and that major cities present low energy consumption. However, a local-scale approach is useful for refining these observations, and this approach highlights the existence of secondary suburban and rural cores that also are characterized by low transport energy consumption. In this respect, the distance from home to a destination is paramount, whereas the mode of transport used has a lower impact. The method is parameterised and reproducible in other territories.

L’article aborde la question de l’action publique visant à promouvoir le développement durable des quartiers urbains existants. En particulier, il envisage la pertinence de développer cette action à partir d’une réorientation de la « politique des quartiers », modalité de l’action publique héritée de la fin du XXème siècle. Les structures publiques de quartier mises en place dans le cadre de cette politique pourraient en effet jouer un rôle d’accélérateurs de la transition de ces quartiers. Elles ont le potentiel pour cela, notamment grâce au réseau social qu’elles développent au sein de la population locale, sans l’engagement de laquelle les pouvoirs publics peuvent bien peu de choses. L’article envisage ensuite la pertinence d’une généralisation de cette politique à tous les quartiers urbains, selon des intensités variables et en complémentarité avec les politiques urbaines plus stratégiques, afin d’assurer un développement équilibré de nos territoires.

The goal of this study is to identify those factors that trigger carpoolers to share their rides and the barriers that restrain non-carpoolers from doing so. To this end, four focus group sessions were organized. In addition, information from the 2009-2010 Flemish household travel survey was analysed. From the focus group discussions, it can be concluded that the concept of carpooling is generally well known, but that the media attention and stimuli for the topic seem to have faded away over time. The main motivations to carpool are the social aspect, the financial benefit or a combination of both. The quantitative analysis underlined for the difference between the distinct types of employees. Furthermore, the finding that the home-work distance increases the likelihood to carpool emphasizes the importance of the financial benefits of carpooling. Financial stimuli are thought to have the most potential to increase the share of carpooling in the modal split. [less ▲]

A large amount of research in the past has focused on the relationships between the energy consumption for home-to-work travels and land-use patterns. However, little is known about children's mobility. This paper analyses the energy consumption, travel distances and modechoices for school commuting based on two decennial surveys in Belgium. The results highlight the following: (1) Mobility behaviours have evolved drastically over the past decades for school commuting, an evolution that cannot be entirely related to land-use variables. (2) The energy consumption for school commuting is strongly dependent upon the school level. (3) The links between land-use patterns and energy consumption for school commuting are different than those highlighted within the literature between urban forms and home-to-work commutes. The concentration of secondary schools and tertiary institutions in urban centres induces higher energy consumption rates, whereas the decentralisation of nursery and primary schools across the entire territory leads to very low local energy consumption and increased walking and cycling. These results provide a better understanding of school commuting within the European context and could guide future policies focused on transport energy consumption at the local scale. [less ▲]

Cette contribution a pour objectif de mettre au centre de la réflexion sur les inégalités environnementales les qualités intrinsèques du logement (superficie, type de chauffage, salubrité, etc.). L’accès à un logement de qualité reste en Wallonie un important vecteur de différenciation sociale. Nous proposons de considérer les attributs du logement comme une variable environnementale susceptible de renforcer les inégalités socio-économiques, au même titre que l’exposition au bruit, à la pollution atmosphérique ou l’accès aux aménités urbaines. A partir d’un indice de précarité socio-économique des quartiers, nous analysons les facteurs de renforcement des inégalités sociales et environnementales par la qualité du logement. L’étude de deux aménités urbaines - l’accessibilité par les alternatives à la voiture et l’accès aux espaces verts – permet de compléter cette approche. Nous mettons ainsi en exergue les spécificités des territoires urbains wallons – notamment au travers de l’analyse du cas spécifique de la région urbaine de Liège – et analysons comment ces aménités renforcent, compensent ou sont déconnectés – des inégalités sociales et en matière de logement.

L'étalement de la ville est reconnu comme un enjeu social et environnemental majeur. Il convient de rappeler à cet égard que la ville actuelle est le fruit d'une longue maturation, qui prend ses germes à la révolution industrielle et qui a connu connaître une accélération spectaculaire au cours des dernières décennies. Deux questions se posent alors aujourd'hui. Sommes-nous en mesure d'engager, de manière collective, une transition vers un nouveau modèle de ville ? Quel pourrait être ce modèle de ville ?

Planning today is a field in reconstruction where new ways of thinking and making the city are experienced. It is trying to deal with the increasing fragmentation of space and society that is challenging its efficacy - even its relevance. In this chapter, by relying on Actor-Network Theory's concepts and case studies of Beirut's suburbs, we observe and analyze new practices, tools and efforts made to charter new ways for gathering resources and organizing collective action. In these case studies, we can see that in a fragmented city and on a local level, urban development initiatives are not necessarily chaotic juxtapositions of autonomous projects. Local networks including different kinds of actors may well be in action. These local networks represent laboratories experimenting governance arrangements, urban planning tools and territory building strategies by using at-hand resources and know-how. We call this planning approach Bricolage Planning. [less ▲]

Studies on nationalism were often interested with the city, especially the city centers. The politics of heritage, the architecture of public buildings and the design and use of central public spaces are often studied in relation to national identity politics. Municipal politics of the historical city in the face of central authorities’ urban politics is also frequently approached in the light of Nation-State building issues. If no doubt the consideration of city centers as a vantage point for understanding the relation between nationalism and the city is an interesting one that bore many fruits, we believe that a vantage point concentrating on the peripheries can highly contribute in unveiling other aspects of this relation. This paper aims at investigating the potentialities of this contribution. As the place where urbanization is taking place, the periphery is: - Where the national identity construction logic is put to test. First because, historically, it is here where the confrontation between the urban and the rural did first take place. Second, because rural exodus and migration, usually more important in the periphery, will continue to challenge it. - Where the city and the hinterland get connected through different national territory building networks. - Where the Nation-State central authorities will find the largest land reserves to develop their large emblematic projects. - Where urban fragmentation poses the strongest challenge to the unitarian message of nationalism, but also is where some nationalist movements might best develop In fact, the periphery represents equally a fertile ground for nationalism and for resistances to it. This paper will rely on the city of Beirut as a case study. [less ▲]

This paper examines regional differences in commute-energy performance in Belgium, and explores their relationships with spatial characteristics such as the distribution of population and housing, the metropolitan influence of the Brussels agglomeration, and the compactness of cities and towns. We also investigate contradictions between Belgian state-wide commute policy and regional differences in average commuting distance and mode choice. Against a background of long-term federal measures that traditionally encourage long-distance commuting in Belgium, we find striking discrepancies between the structure and the development of commuting patterns in the three administrative regions of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels. Residents of Brussels show the most sustainable commuting patterns, due to the metropolitan spatial structure. Residents of Wallonia represent the least sustainable commute. Given the rather weak regional economy of Wallonia compared with Flanders, commuters must frequently seek employment far from their residence. Population changes and consequent developments in the housing market seem to exacerbate this competitive disadvantage, since most growth occurs in relatively remote rural areas that are nevertheless within reach of the main employment centres.

The link between transport energy consumption and land use patterns has been the focus of a considerable amount of academic works over the past decades. While many empirical researches are backed up with solid statistical techniques, most of them do not fully consider the influence of scale underlying empirical quantitative investigations. Using fine-scale home-to-work commuting data for Wallonia (Belgium), this paper re-evaluates Breheny’s (1995) assertion that urban structure should hold the characteristics of major cities if substantial energy savings are to be achieved. A local scale approach highlights efficient settlements in terms of transport energy consumption not only within major towns, butalso within remote rural areas. Furthermore, results suggest that influencing the urban form following local energy efficient examples rather than regional ones could also yield significant gains, without an extreme policy stance of re-urbanisation in major cities.
