Our partners

The strength of AIVP’s network lies in the quality of the connections forged with other associations and institutions over the last thirty years or more. AIVP’s partners include regional, national, and international organisations, all of whom make an invaluable contribution to our network thanks to their diverse approaches and the quality of their own membership.

AIVP is recognised by many international bodies as an expert on city-port matters. It contributes to discussion and debate about global issues (climate change, social integration, river and maritime transport, etc).

The French Partnership for Cities and Territories (PFVT) is the platform for exchanging and promoting the expertise of French urban development actors internationally.
