Case study
Port Louis, player in the Indian Ocean

In the context of the case studies which we carry out on the port cities of the AIVP network, we propose to you today to discover our latest number dedicated to Port Louis (Mauritius).

The port of Port Louis, which handles 99% of the foreign trade of the country, obviously plays a major role. In fact Mauritius Ports Authority are displaying optimism and the port found an upwards trend in 2010. The investments and projects undertaken over the last decade are thus bearing fruit. If the port wish to comfort their asserted ambition to become a transhipment hub, it will be necessary to develop additional capacities. The Port have thus ordered a masterplan in order to study the various options possible, and notably the compatibility between port functions and urban utilisations which could also be installed with the so-called Neotown project in a bordering zone.

«Urban Waterfronts 2011», 30 years of urban waterfront

webmaster13 December 2011

To give back access to the water to the community and to create an identity for the waterfronts : two major aims underlined during the recent conference of “Waterfront Center” which was held in New York. If the Conference bore essentially on the question of public spaces and urban developments on the waterside, one of the parallel sessions also provided the occasion to rediscover a theme widely debated within AIVP, that of the “Working Waterfront”.

ESPO Award : the 2011 winners Ports of Stockholm

webmaster10 November 2011

The 2011 Espo Award for societal integration was awarded on Wednesday 9 November to Ports of Stockholm for their “Port vision 2015” entry.

The thematic for this year was centred on communication strategies. AIVP, like the other members of the jury were particularly interested by the quality and scope of the approach adopted by Ports of Stockholm : a multiform and multifaceted strategy specifically addressing itself to a wide variety of targets so as to make the needs and development strategy of the port understood and accepted, but also to render more visible their actions in matters of spatial and environmental integration.

It is also a satisfaction to see once again a member of AIVP a winner, and even more that it should be Stockholm whose excellent welcome reserved for us in 2008 on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of AIVP and our worldwide conference will be remembered by many.

City–Port innovations

Toward integrated Port City Projects

The French Federation of Urban Planning Agencies (FNAU) have published a study which inventories the innovatory practices implemented in the port cities in order to associate the respective interests of territories, of the economic stakeholders and the “new” environmental deal. Seventy French and international initiatives have been inventoried and analysed with the help of AIVP. Four sectors are examined : economy, environment, urbanism, and governance.

Contribution of AIVP to the Greenport Conference

webmaster20 September 2011

In the context of a collaboration initiated in 2009, AIVP have just played an active part in the sixth edition of Greenport Conference on 14 and 15 September last. This year the work of the conference had the objective of identifying solutions aimed at reducing the impacts of port and shipping activities on the natural and urban environment. On this occasion, ESPO (European Sea Ports Organisation) presented the draft of their “Green Guide” bearing on the issues connected with the management of the quality of the air, of noise, of the water and of wastes, as well as the question of energy consumption and climate change.
