Réunion is home to the only French tropical island ecocity located overseas. The purpose of this project is to design, build, and manage a pleasant and comfortable city that preserves the environment and offers a high quality of life for the resident population and visitors. This project, supported by five municipalities, specifically concerns the heart of the agglomeration made up of the bottom of La Possession (a commune in Réunion) from the town of Le Port to the town center of Saint-Paul—an area of approximately 5,000 hectares.
The team of urban planner Yves Lion was the winner of the international urban planning competition launched for the Island and the tropical island ecocity.
The project proposes an ambitious development model that advocates for the planned use of space to promote an urban lifestyle with a sustainable design.
As part of the development project for the Eco-Cité de Cambaie – Il de la Réunion, a meteorological station is located in the heart of the area to collect and monitor climatic data (wind, rain, sunshine, temperature and humidity).
This project aims to provide data for two other studies:
