The Greater Paris Metropolis (MGP) comprises 130 municipalities and the City of Paris, representing a total population of over seven million inhabitants. The report published today by the Court of Auditors begins with a reminder that the decision to create the MGP was prompted by an ambitious reform programme that was initially aimed at eliminating the major inequalities reported across the metropolitan area. However, six years have passed since the MGP's inception and it is still struggling to exercise its full powers when performing its most strategic missions. Its ability to take action has been hampered since day one by the complexity of its institutional and financial organisation. This report endeavours to outline the prospects of a reform aimed at providing the Greater Paris Metropolis with institutions that are capable of leading the public policies needed to address the challenges facing the metropolis.
