The new facilities will be the final stage in the redevelopment of Genoa’s Old Port district, and will help to strengthen the area’s attractiveness.

Valencia (Spain): invitation to tender for the southern port zone

The port of Valencia has published the specifications to be met by contractors bidding to redevelop its southern zone, including the Nazareth district. The project involves creating new green spaces, tertiary and sports facilities, along with a pedestrian and cycle corridor that will run through a logistics zone to the river mouth park. There are also plans to establish an innovation hub and officers for the Fundación Valenciaport in the port’s former workshops.

The Panama Canal introduces emissions-based fees to tackle climate change

With some 14,000 vessels per year or 36 per day passing through the canal, the regulatory authority has taken the courageous decision as part of its efforts to combat climate change.  Fees for using the canal will be adjusted based on the sustainability index and air pollution output of each vessel.  A ranking will be attributed to ships over 38 metres in length, with financial penalties for the biggest polluters. Although only 3.5% of international trade passes through the canal, the decision should accelerate the decarbonisation movement. When can we expect to see a similar mechanism introduced on the Suez Canal?

Jean-François Kando, Deputy Mayor of Pointe-Noire, tells us about the measures which will enable the city to respond to these threats and “Protect Biodiversity”.
