“Preserving port, industrial and logistics activities, integrating them better with those of cities and their residents, this is the challenge for the authorities running ports, in conjunction with their city counterparts”. A fine tribute by the magazine NPI* to the AIVP’s efforts over the last 30 years or more, which are every bit as topical and newsworthy as ever!
The Guide of Good Practices on How to build the city with the port remains an essential benchmarking tool for port city stakeholders, and many of the initiatives it contains are mentioned in NPI’s report, entitled: “The challenge of City Port relations and mixed uses”.
It naturally features articles about our members, including Le Havre, Rouen, Paris, Liège and Brussels, whose projects had already been presented in depth to the network of AIVP members. You can find the details below (access restricted to members only):
- Le Havre/Rouen/Paris : Presentation of the project “réinventer la Seine” during the conference of Rotterdam in 2016
