SEFACIL Port-City governanceThis third publication by the Sefacil Foundation aims to explore innovative practices from City-Port projects.  It has been produced in partnership with AIVP and is freely available. Its objective is to offer a practical and academic toolkit for both the professional and academic worlds.

Port-City Governance crosses continents to analyse all aspects of port-city governance and to identify current and future issues. The diversity of circumstances and characteristics require delicate decision-making. Port-City Governance brings together thirty contributors and experts from 15 different countries, covering evidence and analyses from 5 continents!

This third volume from the “Oceanids” Collection, with a preface from the AIVP President, revolves around five academic chapters tackling eight international experiences. Four prospective essays complete this reflection on the Smart Port-city. The OECD concludes the work by addressing the effectiveness of port-city relations whilst three renowned experts deliver their recommendations in the postscript.
