Designed as an aid to decisionmaking, the AIVP Guide of Good Practices is now available via a dedicated online platform.
It currently contains 116 examples of good practices, with more to be added regularly. The guide is an invaluable tool for identifying practices that can be transposed to your own Port City and implementing the AIVP 2030 Agenda, to ensure that your Port City contributes actively to the 17 sustainable development goals set by the United Nations.

The legal definition of the port-city relationship, and the responsibility of each one of the main actors is one of the key issues in port city governance. In AIVP, we have seen an increasing discussion about this issue. Recently, there have been new initiatives and debates in Chile and Spain. The most recent development has taken place in Mexico, where last April, the senate unanimously approved the law reform, increasing the implication of port authorities in urban development. These organizations will contribute with 30% of the surplus annual income. Considering how important this debate is, AIVP invited senator Gabriela Benavides, main sponsor of the law, to write an article explaining this initiative and help us understand how it functions, and the possible consequences.
