The President of the Association of Indian Ocean Islands Ports (APIOI), Mr Ramalingum Maistry, has given a progress report on the study currently being carried out for his network of port cities in the Indian Ocean, many of whom are AIVP members. Since September 2021, two permanent staff from our association, Théo Fortin and Ophélia Martinez, have been working with the help of AIVP experts to conduct a suitability study on three key themes for the future of the Indian Ocean: adapting to climate change (Goal No. 1 of the AIVP 2030 Agenda), the energy and ecological transition (Goal No. 2 of the AIVP 2030 Agenda), and the city-port interface (Goal No. 8 of the AIVP 2030 Agenda).

With an initial territorial diagnostic report having been recently delivered to the APIOI, President Maistry shared his thoughts in a video message.
