New practices, new challenges

The biennial World Conferences Cities & Ports are always exceptional events in the life of AIVP. Prepared well in advance and with great enthusiasm, they are an opportunity to mobilise our global network around themes selected for their key relevance to the challenges and projects of today’s port cities. They also bring together the community of AIVP members, active stakeholders in the development of cities and ports, some of whom have been following our work assiduously for over 20 years.
