AIVP will attend a global event to debate sustainable port cities and their role in global strategies for sustainable development.

Between 8 and 13 February 2020, more than 20,000 stakeholders, experts and academics will participate in the 10th edition of the World Urban Forum, the biggest global conference focused on urban development planning and management, organised by UN-Habitat.

AIVP will arrange a side event, presenting the AIVP 2030 Agenda as the main tool for engaging key stakeholders contributing to sustainable port cities. The ten commitments laid out in AIVP’s document, and its 46 specific actions, adapt the 17 Sustainable Development Goals specifically for the Port-City relationship.

At the same event, AIVP and UN-Habitat will sign a Memorandum of Understanding agreeing to work together on the further development of the AIVP 2030 Agenda.

More specifically, the side event entitled “Port cities as proxies for global sustainable development: the AIVP 2030 Agenda” will involve experts and high-level representatives from port cities who will highlight the importance of Port-City relations and the role of AIVP in guiding port city leaders towards more sustainable relationships.

AIVP believes that Port-City issues need to be given greater visibility, in order to enlist support for key sustainable development projects. The MoU with UN-Habitat is a symbol of AIVP’s renewed commitment to defending the interests of its members in building sustainable global port cities.
