Mega-ships: which impacts for port-cities?

This year’s annual general meeting of our association in Malaga will once again be an opportunity to bring together all those with a stake in the sustainable development of port communities. In Malaga we will be debating the issue of mega-ships, not just the shipping behemoths but also the giant cruise liners, which for many of us are a very real manifestation of globalisation, and perhaps of its excesse… Port authorities and local communities need to work together to devise new strategies.

Pasaia: A redefinition of city and port spaces

webmaster13 April 2016

In September 2015 the Port Council of Pasaia gave the green light for the Special Plan for the regeneration of Pasaia Bay. This is no doubt the result of a decision taken as part of the 2015-2025 Strategic Plan for the port to defer the construction of an outer port. The particular configuration of the port of Pasaia inside the bay and its close proximity to different administrative districts and residential areas required a redefinition of port and urban uses in this territory in order to preserve the port’s competitiveness and its future.
