UNESCO Delegation visits Valparaiso’s maritime heritage site

The Director General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, visited the Port City of ValparaĂ­so (Chile), at the beginning of the month in the company of municipal authorities. The important rehabilitation projects that are being or have been developed in the Barrio Puerto were showcased, including the Port Market. Mayor Sharp also highlighted the management and governance of the heritage sites: especially, the participation of communities. 

Similarly, Mr. Franco Gandolfo, the General Manager of the Port of ValparaĂ­so, highlighted the ValparaĂ­so Dialoga during the 17th World Conference of the AIVP.  The process was initiated in 2021 by the Port Company. 500 actors from the city were brought together to seek consensus regarding the development of the coastal edge and port expansion.

Come to POPSU MĂ©tropoles symposium on 7 June in Strasbourg (France)

At the next POPSU Métropoles symposium, the Port of Strasbourg and the city’s Metropolitan Authority will meet on 7 June to discuss their roles in the “metropolisation” process. Against the backdrop of the climate emergency and globalisation, the port and city have changed the way they see themselves. At the symposium, POPSU will bring together experts and spatial planning specialists to present the findings of the research conducted over the last three years, including those of the Atlas of the port and river metropolitan area.

Riverlife and evolve environment : architecture win awards for Pittsburg waterfront (United States)

At its most recent national conference, the American Planning Association honoured Riverlife and evolve environment : architecture for the Pittsburg riverfronts master plan. Designed following a wide-ranging consultation that involved almost 5,000 people, the plan will create new public spaces in this strategically important area of the city. The project will be implemented gradually over the next ten years.

The Dutch government invests in sustainable river transportation

The company “Zero Emission Services (ZES)” is set to receive €50 million from Nationaal Groeifonds, an initiative by the Dutch Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Change.  The investment will be used to develop 75 battery containers for maritime application (ZESpacks), 14 docking stations, and electric inland vessels. 
If the Netherlands adopt zero emissions-only river vessels by 2050, the country should save some 6.6 Mt of CO2 and up to 17,500 t of NOx. A zero emissions river boat has already been sailing in the Netherlands since September 2021. 
ZES is a member of the European MAGPIE consortium, which aims to decarbonise shipping in, to, and from ports.

Bordeaux (France): Partnership for a maritime and port innovation cluster

On 3 May 2022, during “Space4Ports” day focusing on synergies between port and space sectors, Bordeaux Port and Bordeaux Technowest signed a partnership agreement to create a maritime and port innovation cluster. “Bordeaux Technoports” will be located in the GPMB buildings in Bacalan. This ninth “technopolitan” site in the region will be dedicated to transitions: low-carbon energy generation, ship refitting and retrofitting, digitisation of port jobs, and the re-industrialisation of port zones.

17th World Conference of the AIVP

Thanks to the total of 350 participants who assisted to the 17th World Conference of the AIVP, which took place in Tangier, Morocco and was centered around the theme “Inspiring Blue Futures”. We also thank our partners – SAPT and Marina – and the official sponsors – SMIT – Moroccan Agency for Tourism Development, Tanger Med Port Authority, Agence Nationale des Ports (ANP), Agence pour la Promotion et le dĂ©veloppement du Nord, and Centre RĂ©gional d’Investissement de la RĂ©gion de Tanger – TĂ©touan – Al Hoceima.  Through the concept of “Inspiring Blue Futures”, the AIVP intended to underline the role of primary importance that port cities have to play in this mission and on crucial issues for the future of our societies, our economy and our environment. At this conference, we saw that Blue Futures are made up of innovative solutions for the decarbonization of supply chains and port cities, and that we must focus on alternative fuels and the electrification of infrastructures, marine renewable energies, digitalization or even carbon capture in the marine environment (the best carbon sinks are wetlands and the sea bed). We also ascertained that new approaches need to be developed in natural habitat restoration, sustainable coastal tourism or food systems, including aquaculture and sustainable fishing.
