The Development of French Ports Centers
March 2022 will have been an intense month for the future of the Ports Centers. In Le Havre, the AIVP and Le Havre Port Center welcomed a delegation from La Rochelle, who came to compare their project with the experience from Le Havre. Supported by the commercial, fishing and yachting ports of La Rochelle, this project is gradually taking shape. In Lorient, the agglomeration is also carrying out a project for a Port Center facility which will reinforce the concrete steps taken over the last few years at the initiative of the Urban Planning Agency. Several informal exchanges have taken place with the AIVP team, who are delighted with the acceleration of the project. However, important initial steps have also been taken in Marseille and Bordeaux.

Governance commitments for sustainable port cities
Today, it is unquestionable that reaching a sustainable development model for our society, respecting the earth boundaries is (or should be) our main goal. Global initiatives like the SDGs and the AIVP Agenda 2030, inspire and impulse different actors towards this greater goal. But talking is easier than doing, and there are governance challenges along the way, as Prof. Peter Hall shows us in this article. In the coming weeks we will focus on port-city governance processes to learn more about the difficulties that may emerge and the different solutions that ports and cities found to continue this path towards sustainable development.
