Climate change and floods: taking inspiration from the Hunter Point’s Park solutions for rebuilding

As a succession of hurricanes wreak vast damage, the ASLA is highlighting the need to anticipate these phenomena by drawing inspiration from innovative solutions such as those deployed at Hunter Point, a former industrial site on New York’s waterfront. The measures taken proved effective against hurricane Sandy, even before the site was officially inaugurated. The ASLA is also set to publish a set of recommendations in early 2018.

Paris inaugurates its new urban port in the heart of the city of Choisy-Le-Roy

The aim was to integrate port activity more effectively into a developing urban district. After three years of work, the port’s activity has been concentrated in a smaller area, and a new public space is now available, suitable for walking and recreational activities. At times when the port is not active, the length of the quay is accessible. The development by Haropa Ports de Paris is the latest example of a time- and space-sharing strategy.

Spain: the Court of Auditors expresses reservations on the multiplication of port investments.

The Court blames ports for not carrying out realistic studies of the real demand underlying every new infrastructure work. It demands the definition of a clearer national strategy and control mechanisms. The response to market demands must be analysed more deeply from a national perspective and not port by port. The Court does not recognise a direct correlation between infrastructure expenditure and efficiency gains.
