In October 2023, AIVP will launch the first edition of Online Associate Degree in Port City Sustainability, created in partnership with the International Institute of Port Cities (IIPC), based in Chile. The aim of this training programme is to support the various stakeholders of the ports and territories in their efforts to achieve the sustainable development objectives.

It is conceived as a practical tool for the use of different actors in ports and territories in their efforts to achieve the sustainable development goals. It therefore forms part of the goals of the AIVP 2030 Agenda, specifically Goal No 4: “Promoting city port dialogue through a renewed governance approach aimed at reconciling the quest for economic and environmental performance with the well-being and aspirations of the population.”

The programme includes the following courses:

  1. Governance of Port Cities.
  2. Economy of Port Cities.
  3. Urban and Natural Environments of Port Cities.
  4. Cultures and Heritage of Port Cities.
  5. Prospects of Port Cities.
