AIVP’s 2030 Agenda is the world’s first initiative to adapt the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the specific context of City Port relations. The document, produced jointly with AIVP members at the Quebec Conference in 2018, sets down 10 goals to be achieved by 2030. It was submitted to the UN in 2019 as the contribution of port cities to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, within the framework of the partnership initiated with this international institution.
The Agenda assists port city stakeholders to direct their actions and projects towards sustainable city-port relationships.
As port cities are often in the front line, they suffer the most serious consequences of climate change (floods, hurricanes, etc.), but they are also in the best position to experiment innovative solutions on the following 10 goals:
1. Climate change adaptation
2. Energy transition & circular economy
3. Sustainable mobility
4. Renewed governance
5. Investing in the human capital of port cities
6. Port culture and identity
7. Quality food for all
8. City port interface
9. Health and quality of life
10. Protecting biodiversity
AIVP’s 2030 Agenda is the world’s first initiative to adapt the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the specific context of City Port relations.
In Riga the AIVP Agenda 2030 was ratified, formalizing the commitment and reinforcing our collaboration with the UN and other international organizations. Port cities have historically been places prone to changes and adaptation, so another sustainable future is within reach.
