The French Partnership for Cities and Territories (PFVT) is the platform for exchange and promotion of French experts in the field of urban development at the international level.
It is a multi-stakeholders partnership created in June 2011 and chaired by the Deputy Hubert Julien-Laferrière with the support of Ministries of Europe and Foreign Affairs, Territorial Cohesion, Ecologic and Solidary Transition and Culture. Today, it gathers almost two hundred organizations that are representative of the diversity of French urban expertise :
As a think tank, the PFVT involves its partners during workshops in order to formulate common propositions to be carried by France during the World Urban Forum and the African-French Summit.
The PFVT organizes the participation of French stakeholders to international debates on urban issues and promotes the French expertise regarding sustainable urban development.
The technical secretariat of the PFVT is led by the French federation of urban planning agencies (FNAU).
