Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes recently ratified the AIVP Agenda 2030. Both the initiatives undertaken by the port in recent years and its current projects are firmly in line with the ten goals that make up our Agenda. This is particularly true of several projects which tie in with three specific Agenda goals, namely adapting to climate change, the energy transition and circular economy, and protecting biodiversity.
The event took place on Monday 30 September and Tuesday 1 October. It was the last stage of a cruise benchmarking process carried out by AIVP at the request of stakeholders in Le Havre.
The aim of the exercise was to support efforts to create conditions for sustainable development of the vibrant cruise activity in Le Havre by the period 2020-2025, and to make the area around the cruise ship docks a real asset contributing to the attractiveness of the City Port of Le Havre.

The cruise industry and its relations with the cities and ports that play host to its ever bigger liners, carrying ever more passengers, have been transformed over the last decade.
The magazine Cruise Insight has contacted nine associations around the world to gauge their views on these changes and the challenges facing port cities. AIVP was naturally among the first organisations approached to contribute to the report, which has just been published.
Olivier Lemaire, General Manager of AIVP, took the opportunity to reaffirm AIVP’s message and to underline the need for dialogue with all stakeholders in the industry, to redefine a balanced partnership that benefits our port cities and their residents.
