La ciudad de Dublín y su puerto

Descargar la ponencia / fichero pdf – 0.3 Mo

RQ photo _tailleOK2Dublín siempre ha sido una ciudad portuaria. En efecto, el puerto en sí vino primero que la ciudad, hace poco más de mil doscientos años. La ciudad creció con y alrededor de las actividades del puerto y su tráfico marítimo. Toda la comunidad dublinesa estaba relacionada, directa e indirectamente, con la vida del que pronto se convertiría en el mayor puerto del noroeste de Europa.
A lo largo de los siguientes siete siglos, a medida que Dublín iba creciendo, el río Liffey se convirtió en un eje central para la Ciudad de Dublín y la actividad portuaria fue el escenario diario de los ciudadanos en ambas riberas del río. Pero a medida que se modernizaba la industria naviera, aumentaba el tamaño de los buques comerciales y así comenzó el lento, pero inexorable traslado del puerto río abajo hacia mayores calados. Con el tiempo, los trabajadores portuarios y sus comunidades lo siguieron y se fueron desprendiendo, separándose lentamente del resto de los dublineses.
En 1988/9, bajo el liderazgo del Gobierno, Irlanda decidió establecer una industria de servicios financieros para aprovechar la liberalización a nivel mundial de los mercados financieros. Los terrenos que habían quedado desocupados cuando la actividad portuaria se trasladó río abajo se volvieron a conectar, por primera vez en 250 años, con el resto de la Capital.
En 1997, el gobierno creó la Dublin Docklands Development Authority para desarrollar más esta área. Su trabajo ha tenido un éxito rotundo. ¡El puerto antiguo, fundado por los Vikingos hace veinte mil años, es hoy el hogar de muchos invasores nuevos y pacíficos que trabajan en un lugar que los locales llaman “Silicon Docks”!

Rocío López Picón_TailleOKLa ciudad de Huelva está situada en el estuario de los ríos Tinto y Odiel. Su desarrollo urbano se concentra a lo largo de la margen izquierda del río Odiel, donde se encuentra la infraestructura del Puerto Interior, así como las instalaciones de un importante complejo industrial químico básico establecido desde 1960. Esta margen izquierda del río Odiel forma parte de la Zona de Servicio del Puerto de Huelva, y consta de marismas, dunas y playas fluviales que desde la industrialización han sufrido una grave degradación ambiental.
Con el fin de restablecer valores de calidad ambiental  en la zona y promover el uso social y la integración del Puerto en la ciudad de Huelva, la Autoridad Portuaria de Huelva está llevando a cabo diversas acciones de restauración ecológica y social en un tramo de cinco kilómetros en la orilla izquierda del el río Odiel. Tales acciones son: la restauración ambiental de las marismas, dunas y playas deterioradas más de cuatro kilómetros, y la creación de un paseo del río de un kilómetro en los pantanos más deterioradas que están más cerca de la ciudad de Huelva. Los objetivos del proyecto han sido los siguientes:
– La diversificación y la conservación de los hábitats y especies de alto interés ambiental protegidas, incluidas en algunas listas rojas europeas.
– a mejora de los recursos naturales de la zona.
– La mejora y diversificación de la funcionalidad de las marismas debido a la construcción de una infraestructura adyacente que discurre por encima de las marismas que conecta la ciudad de Huelva y el Puerto.
– La estabilización y restauración de las marismas.
– El control de la erosión en zonas de la zona de marisma baja.
– Divulgar información ambiental y fomentar la educación ambiental para la ciudadanía.
Tras la ejecución de estudios de monitoreo ambiental, es posible demostrar que el proyecto se ha recuperado con gran éxito tanto las funciones ecológicas del ecosistema de los pantanos, como la afluencia de ciudadanos y turistas a la zona. El presupuesto del proyecto ha sido de 27 millones de €..

Working waterfronts: De Sudáfrica en los Estados Unidos y al resto del mundo

DUB_charlier_tailleOKThe urban waterfront concept was introduced in the eighties by the Washington DC-based Waterfront Center, and a high number of such waterfronts can be found in North America. A series of these will be briefly presented in the central part of the paper, including the most diversified of these, Los Angeles (San Pedro), whose potential is probably the highest. Before this, to make a link with the situation dealt with by the keynote speaker, we will take an in-depth look  a the most iconic of the world’s working waterfront, Cape Town, to identify the main ingredients of successful working waterfront and to see how they combine. In the third, final part of the presentation, we will turn to a few other worldwide examples, to show how diverse and unique are the combinations encountered between these ingredients, that make working waterfront different from conventional waterfront, where the main concern is just access to the water for leisure, with no other economic dimension.

As a research professor at the Department of Geography at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, Dr Jacques Charlier a written extensively in the last forty years about ports and maritime transports, especially about containers, cruises and waterfronts. He started studying European seaports, and he extended thereafter his scientific investigations to North American as well as African, then Asian ports and waterfronts, with more than 125 papers and book chapters.
Besides lecturing in Louvain-la-Neuve and in an interuniversity MA degree in transports and logistics in Brussels, he had visiting positions at the Sorbonne Universities in Paris and Abu Dhabi. And in 2000 as well as in 2012, he was also the President of the Belgian Royal Academy of Overseas Sciences. He attended the very first IACP conference in Le Havre in 1988, and has co-operated with the association since these early days, including as the one of the authors of one of its reports in 2006 about best practices on some European waterfronts.
