Within this year’s programme The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) will be running two Port Endeavor workshops across the two days.

Port Endeavor draws on real life examples from the 200+ strong IAPH World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP) database of projects and best practices on how ports integrate the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) into their business models and operations. The aim of the session is to increase awareness among port management, staff and professionals working in port communities on how ports are already applying the UN Sustainable Development Goals to their business, to ultimately accelerate adoption of these measures in the port sector.

IAPH was formed in 1955 and over the last sixty years has grown into a global alliance representing over 180 members ports and 140 port related businesses in 90 countries.

IAPH, a non-governmental organization (NGO) aims to be the global trade association of choice for port authorities and operators, representing their interests at regulatory level at the International Maritime Organization, the World Customs Organization, the International Standards Organization and other global alliances such as the Global Maritime Forum and the World Economic Forum.

The principal aim of IAPH revolves around promotion of the interests of Ports worldwide, building strong member relationships and sharing best practices among members.

Members of IAPH will be granted a special discount on delegates places in order to take advantage of opportunities to learn from key industry speakers as well as chances to network during refreshments, lunch breaks, welcome reception and conference dinner.
