Given the rising interest of AIVP port city members in the Port Center concept and the importance to keep in line with its Mission Charter, the AIVP started to develop a guide and different accompanying approaches already experienced in these last years. The goal of this new document is to answer the initial questions that might come up when developing the concept.

The guide is based on data, experiences and best practices gathered by the AIVP over the last decade together with the partners of the Port Center Network but also with other leading institutions in the field of social integration of ports.

In this publication the developers will get the knowledge the AIVP can transmit structured in a user friendly way, completed with examples, data sheets, links and key-questions that will help in the first stages of the process.

The guide is available in english, french or spanish.
