Les nouveaux paysages urbains à Mayotte : L’exemple de la rénovation urbaine de M’Gombani

Abstract : Mayotte is a rapidly changing territory. It is the scene of several development projects like M’Gombani’s one. This district of Mamoudzou, the biggest city of the island, is one of the poorest in the city. Also, it was classified as a sensitive zone and benefits the aids for its urban renewal. This renovation aims to give this neighborhood all the necessary comfort for decent living conditions and thus improve the image of the city. It is part of a national urban renewal project. Today, the town planning code offers the possibility of adapting projects to local contexts, especially with the participation of the populations concerned. This possibility is not seized in Mayotte. This materializes in achievements without souls, identical to what is done everywhere in the metropolis. So we are slowly moving towards a banalisation of urban planning leading to a loss of identity of urban landscapes of Mayotte.
