OECD publishes report on Blue Economy with the support of AIVP
OECD publishes report on Blue Economy with the support of AIVP

Building on a global survey of 80+ cities, regions and basins, the report entitled “The Blue Economy in Cities and Regions – A Territorial Approach”, highlights the costs and benefits of the blue economy at subnational level, shedding light on the link between the blue economy and water security. This analysis provides an overview of the multi-level governance of the blue economy and related gaps. It calls on cities and regions to develop resilient, inclusive, sustainable and circular (RISC-proof) blue economies by establishing the right governance conditions related to policy making, policy coherence and policy implementation. The report concludes with a RISC Assessment Framework that offers a self-evaluation tool for subnational governments. AIVP, among other organizations, has supported this work, being active in the disclosure of the survey and providing a port-city perspective.

Port of Venice is connecting people with the lagoon

The Port Authority of the Northern Adriatic Sea (Italy) has signed an agreement with various partners for a 3-year collaboration focused on developing a culture of hospitality capable of transmitting the values of respect for the city and protection of the lagoon.  The intention is to create a new sustainable tourism model through training, transmission of information and skills to and from the managers of accommodation facilities, and the design of paths to accompany work in the hospitality sector. It needs to be clear that Venetian hospitality is closely linked to the lagoon in which it is situated. The Port Authority has also unveiled the “Arena for a Tree” art installation, which will allow the public to be able to approach the lagoon and reflect on the importance of their surrounding environment.

European ports to create a medium-sized port network

The Ports of Riga (Latvia), Cartagena (Spain), Trieste and Monfalcone (Italy) and the ports of the North Sea (Belgium, Netherlands) have signed a declaration of cooperation to create the Association of Four Sea Ports. This medium-sized European port network aims to share knowledge, experience, and best practices in the sector of energy, environmental and sustainable port management. The association is also expecting to attract fundings and take part in European projects. In addition, the ports will strengthen their competitiveness by easing the flow of cargo between them.

Le Havre’s Port Center will temporarily reside in the football stadium

For a limited period, the Stade Océane, home to Le Havre AC football club (France), will be hosting an exhibition devoted entirely to port culture, created in collaboration with a local artist. There will also be a range of fun activities for visitors. The exhibition is part of Le Havre Port Center’s programme of events held off-site in alternative locations, as it aims to reach out to a wider and more diverse audience. For the duration of the event, the eastern stands of the stadium have been renamed the “Tribune LH Port Center” (with LH standing for Le Havre). The initiative serves as a reminder that port and sport are two key aspects of popular culture found in many port cities.
