AIVP 2030 Agenda gains new signatories!
AIVP 2030 Agenda gains new signatories!

Since its adoption at the General Meeting in Riga in June 2019, the AIVP 2030 Agenda has been ratified by more than 75 AIVP members from 20 different countries. We are delighted to welcome the new signatories, who include the port of Bahia Blanca (Argentina), the Port of Montreal (Canada), the Brittany region (France), and both the city and port of Bilbao (Spain). The list of signatories grows longer day by day.

AIVP’s 2030 Agenda is the world’s first initiative to adapt the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the specific context of City Port relations. The document, produced jointly with AIVP members at the Quebec Conference in 2018, sets down 10 goals to be achieved by 2030.

The Agenda is designed to guide the actions and projects of port city stakeholders to ensure sustainable relations between the city and port. Port cities frequently find themselves in the front line when it comes to the most serious consequences of climate change (submersion, flooding, hurricanes, etc.), but they are also best placed to test innovative solutions in the following ten areas:

By ratifying the AIVP 2030 Agenda, the signatories are making a powerful commitment to their communities, and demonstrating their intention to develop sustainable City-Port relations. The ten goals include measures that go well beyond abstract initiatives or mere green-washing. As a result, port city stakeholders have a clear idea of the key areas in which they can take concrete action.

The 2030 Agenda shows the scale of ambition for AIVP and its members. Together, we will drive forward discussion about City-Port interaction at the highest political levels, including at the forthcoming United Nations World Urban Forum, to be held in Abu Dhabi in February 2020. We, the Cities and Ports of the world, will contribute to the global debate about urbanisation, highlighting the strategic, political and economic importance of port cities. We will emphasise the need to devote more resources to these seaside and riverside cities, to drive innovative, sustainable projects that shape the future for their populations.

Recovery plans are springing up in every part of the world. Port cities are often central to these major stimulus packages. Europe has targeted green growth as strategically important, with the “Next Generation EU” plan bearing its first fruits in the shape of the Horizon programme and initiatives by DG Move. For Haropa (France), 71 million euros will be invested in both biodiversity and offshore wind.  There are green shoots in Northern Europe too, with plans for a 10 GW offshore wind hub off the coast of Jutland (Denmark). Asia is also at the forefront. Taichung (Taiwan) will be at the heart of a 5.7 GW complex. Wind farms are also growing in Sinan (South Korea) and Guangdong (People’s Republic of China). The coastal regions of the South China Sea are especially well advanced in this area.
