The ecological transition (energy or agro-ecological transition, development issues, etc.) is a subject of public policies. They are complex, sometimes underpinned by blockages or misunderstandings. At IDDRI, we propose possible solutions based on science. We put them on the democratic agenda because they are aimed at political and economic decision-makers, as well as at civil society as a whole. In these podcasts, IDDRI research fellows present their thoughts to shed light on the debate.

Low Emission Zones are the subject of our new episode.

How can we get the most polluting vehicles out of city centres while taking into account social inequalities? The health and environmental effects of vehicle traffic can be resolved by establishing low emission zones (LEZs). This is what the French law provides for all major cities: banning access to the most polluting vehicles - which are also the oldest. But what are the social and economic implications, and above all, how can they be taken into account? Jean-Philippe Hermine answers Sophie Larmoyer's questions.
