couv_etude_ovpoi_2014On the occasion of the 14th World Conference on Cities and Ports (Durban, South Africa, 2014), the Indian Ocean Observatory for Port Cities has published a series of three studies to improve the sharing of experiences through map and graphics-based information.

Cities and Ports of South Africa

South Africa is characterised by an emerging economy marked by clear disparities between north and south. Through regionalisation and globalisation, the country is progressively establishing itself on the world stage. South Africa has five large port cities at the centre of challenges to competitiveness: Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Ngqura, Durban and Richards Bay.

The south western Indian Ocean: a study of development projects in port city waterfront

With this study, the Indian Ocean Observatory for Ports Cities seeks to provide for the use of all its members a comparative analysis of waterfront redevelopment projects in the Indian Ocean region.

Analysis of the positioning of the fishing sector in the ports and cities of the western Indian Ocean, with special incidence of the large pelagic fisheries

With this study the Indian Ocean Observatory fort Ports Cities seeks to provide its members with a better understanding of how the fishing industry is established in their territories on a micro-local scale and to establish its direct and indirect economic effects on the port-city’s territories.
