Sustainable development calls inter-municipal authorities to mind, in their internal functioning as well as in their actions and projects. In less than one year, how can we commit an inter-municipal action plan that drives them and engages them in a coherence of sustainable development?

This guide, designed by Mairie-Conseils Caisse des Dépôts and the National Union of Permanent Environmental Initiatives Centers (CPIE), with 24 inter-municipal organisatinos and CPIEs of their territories, brings answers to this question with an approach of collaborative and progressive work, successfully implemented: DDmarche.

The DDmarche® brand is registered by the Caisse des Dépôts and the National Union of CPIEs.
