IAPH’s World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP) now catalogues 237 port projects applying UN Sustainable Development Goals in practice
IAPH is very proud to announce the candidature of 49 projects by IAPH members for the #IAPH2022 Sustainability Awards, with the winners to be announced at the upcoming IAPH World Ports Conference on 17 May.
A total of 53 port and collaborative projects entered the Program this year so far and have now been processed and uploaded to the WPSP Portfolio raising the total port projects in the database to 237.
IAPH Technical Director Antonis Michail commented : “We are grateful to all the 36 member ports from 26 countries that submitted projects for this year’s competition and wish good luck to all participants. Once again, the high quality of entries poses a difficult, yet inspiring challenge to the members of our experts’ jury who will be evaluating and scoring the projects up until March 18, after which we will submit top three projects for public voting in each of the six categories of the Awards, namely Climate and Energy, Environmental Care, Community Building, Infrastructure, Digitalization, and Health, Safety and Security.”
AREA 506 and Port Saint John are entrants in the Community Building category.
The outcome of the jury evaluation (70%) and that of the public vote (30%), will co-determine the six final winners per category, to be announced during the Gala Dinner of the IAPH World Ports Conference in Vancouver on 17 May.
