London (UK): the Port launches a public consultation to update its “2050 Vision for the Thames”.

The public consultation is taking place online, from March to 30 April 2022. Feedback will be taken into account in the final version of the document to be published this summer. This updated version of the vision for the river is focused on three key themes: trade, destination, and nature.  Five priority actions have been identified: security, decarbonisation, resilience, technological change, and inclusion. The aim is to make the Thames safe, smart, sustainable, and inclusive.

Singapore unveils a maritime decarbonisation plan for 2050.

The plan, presented on 09/03 by the Minister of Transport, is focused on seven key priorities. They include the national port embarkations and terminals, future marine fuels, R&D, and carbon compatibility.  The stated aim is to make the terminals carbon-neutral by 2050 and to cut emissions from shipping by 15% between 2021 and 2030.  The plan represents an additional budget of around $300m.

The importance of the latest IPCC report for port cities

On 28/02, the IPCC published a report by the 2nd working group on climate impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability.  It highlights the fact that of all transport infrastructures, ports are most at risk. Port activity is also being affected by rising sea levels and the increased frequency and severity of storms. The report also suggests some adaptations, such as relocating ports, reducing shipping and supply chain distances, or better regulation of products associated with deforestation, like soya.

Kitakyushu (Japan): Mojiko Retro, the port redeveloped

Once Japan’s fourth-largest commercial port, Mojiko saw its activities decline after WW2. Since the late 1980s, it has undergone a “Mojikō Retro” style redevelopment drawing on its historic assets. With museums, shops, new access routes, a viewing tower, tourist facilities, and more, the site is now a very attractive area that drew over 2 million visitors every year before the Covid crisis.
