We ended 2019 by suggesting five new examples of good practices for our guide to "Planning the City with the Port". As previously mentioned, we regularly add new content to the guide, and now have four more examples to share with you.
Deploying sustainable mobility is one of the ten goals set out in the AIVP 2030 Agenda. The European Civitas Portis initiative is an example of a project aimed at identifying solutions to achieve it. It is coordinated by Antwerp, and to get a better idea of the expected results, we spoke to Mr. Koen Kennis, vice mayor of the city of Antwerp, responsible for mobility.
AIVP has been selected among more than 800 candidates by the UN committee to organize a debate. The debate will focus on the contribution of cities and ports around the world to the 17 sustainable development goals. AIVP has developed an Agenda which constitutes a roadmap for port cities in 10 points, to be completed by 2030. This agenda will be presented on February 10, 2020 in Abu Dhabi.

The online platform dedicated to our guide of good practices, "Plan the City with the Port", now includes some brand new examples, largely inspired by our daily monitoring of the latest international developments in the world of port cities.
Altogether, the guide now includes 129 examples of good practices!
Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes recently ratified the AIVP Agenda 2030. Both the initiatives undertaken by the port in recent years and its current projects are firmly in line with the ten goals that make up our Agenda. This is particularly true of several projects which tie in with three specific Agenda goals, namely adapting to climate change, the energy transition and circular economy, and protecting biodiversity.
The list of signatories grows longer day by day. Since its adoption in June 2019, the AIVP 2030 Agenda has been ratified by more than 75 AIVP members from 20 different countries. We are delighted to welcome the new signatories, who include, among others, the port of Bahia Blanca (Argentina), the Port of Montreal (Canada), the Brittany region (France), and both the city and the port of Bilbao (Spain).
