Le Mondial du Bâtiment extends welcome to french-speaking countries

  • 24 Jul 2017

Le Mondial du Bâtiment and its three exhibitions Batimat, Ideobain and Interclima ElecHB are extending a special welcome to French-speaking countries throughout the event.

This has been enabled by the support of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), through the Institut de la Francophonie pour le Development Durable (IFDD).

The event will be held in Paris from 6-10th November 2017. Construction industry players will get the opportunity to meet decision-makers from 84 states and governments in the French-speaking world.

The IFDD will be lending its support with a programme of talks and special events and the Francophonie/IFDD Pavillion.

The Francophonie/IFDD Pavilion is in the centre of Hall 6 and will welcome representatives from regions with high growth potential including Sub-Saharan Africa and North Africa as well as from Belgium, Canada, France, Luxembourg and Switzerland.

In addition, key issues affecting sustainable construction in the countries in the Francophonie network will be discussed in a series of talks in the “Regard sur l’Architecture” forum in Hall 5A and throughout the week in the workshop area in the Francophonie/IFDD Pavilion.

The challenge of social housing will be covered, as well as the challenges facing Africa’s green cities, the challenges of local subcontracting in the building and civil engineering sector and the regional new buildings energy efficiency code in the countries of the West African Economic and Monetary Union.

IFDD Director Jean-Pierre Ndoutoum comments: “The IFDD has for many years been developing content, courses and tools on the theme of sustainable building, particularly energy efficiency and renewable energy.

“Le Mondial du Bâtiment provides an audience of professionals and decision-makers in French-speaking countries who would benefit from these initiatives. In addition, our participation in this event aligns fully with OIF’s strategic objective which is to support innovation and creativity for the benefit of the economy, from a sustainable development perspective.”
