The French Network of Urban Planning Agencies (FNAU) was created in 1980 and gathers today 49 urban planning agencies in France, where most urban planning agencies have an associative status.
The FNAU is an association of elected representatives that offers a privileged place for dialogue regarding urban issues. The network is involved in national and European debate on the future of urban public policies. The network gathers around 1500 experts in urban planning. The federation enables them to have a place to exchange and work closely in order to capitalize their knowledge, share their experience and work on common projects.
