AIVP invites you to a webinar with the ports of the Indian Ocean: together we will tackle the question of their resilience facing climate change, which is particularly affecting these islands, but also the challenges connected to the energy transition and to the port-city interface.

Sign up

Tuesday 28 February 2023 (11:00 – 12:30 CET Western and Central European Time / 13:00 – 14:30 Madagascar, Comoros, Mayotte Time / 14:00 – 15:30 Mauritius, La Réunion, Seychelles Time)

The port cities of Madagascar, Mauritius, Reunion and the Seychelles, as well as those of neighbouring islands, play the role of capital, cultural and heritage centre and national economic engine. They are interconnected and stand on several South-South maritime routes. However, the Indian Ocean islands are also at an ecological crossroads. As the AIVP, a long-standing active partner in this region of the world, wishes to help the port cities to adapt and transform themselves, we have been carrying out a study on the “greening of the ports of the Indian Ocean” for more than a year.

As we approach the end of this collective reflection, we wanted to organise this webinar to share the first conclusions with the members of our network. Join us for a lively and forward-looking discussion!
