Taking safety into account in urban development: challenges and methodology
Note rapide “Population and Lifestyles”, no. 377
How can urban development meet the population's demand for safety and what solutions can be offered to urban development professionals faced with problems of insecurity ?
What alternative ways are there of improving safety to methods that threaten the continuity of the urban fabric and how can one go beyond a purely technical vision of this geared solely to protecting public spaces ? In other words, how can we reconcile urban quality with safety and security ?
After analysing foreign and French experiences, IAU île-de-France here sets out some
topics for discussion and presents a methodology aimed at encouraging and helping those involved in urban development to consider safety as being part of their work.
