Efficacity – ex-post assessment methodology for the “Ville de demain” PIA



The “Ville de demain” programme is managed by the Caisse des Dépôts and aims to finance innovative, demonstrator and exemplary projects of what the city of tomorrow will be in 31 EcoCités territories. In order to assess the performance and reproducibility of the innovative actions established, the Caisse des Dépôts entrusted Efficacity with designing an ex-post assessment framework for all the actions implemented, and all the EcoCités territories on a broader scale.


Test the methodology developed by Efficacity on a panel of 5 EcoCités (characterisation and evaluation of around a hundred actions), continuous improvement proposal for the evaluation framework (refining the terminology and characterisation system), establishment of the database of indicators and drafting of the specifications for the web platform hosting the evaluation.

Based on the finalised evaluation framework, a self-assessment campaign was launched by the Caisse des Dépôts in 2018 in order to capitalise on the good practises and any difficulties encountered by EcoCités in implementing their actions.
