#IAPH2022: join the strategic technical committees

All regular and associate IAPH members attending the World Ports Conference are very welcome to join and actively take part in the meetings of our strategic technical committees in the morning of Thursday 19 May. The Climate and Energy Committee will discuss the latest update from the IMO intersessional working group on GHG emissions of shipping, which is taking place during the same week, and what can be expected at the forthcoming meeting of the IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 78) on market-based measures proposals. The Committee will also address IAPH’s involvement in Green Shipping Corridors, the IMO GHG Industry Alliance, and IMO GreenVoyage2050, plus presentations from Port of Rotterdam on energy transition, Mauritius Port Authority on onshore power supply, and the #IAPH2022 Sustainability Awards winner in the category climate and energy. At the Data Collaboration Committee meeting you will get the latest IAPH’s two submissions to IMO FAL46, which is held this week, as well as updates on the port-customs guidelines with the World Customs Organization, data standards on port call optimisation, working groups on automation, innovation and cybersecurity, plus presentations on digitalisation initiatives from NextTrucking, GSTS, Trinidad & Tobago and Fiji Ports, plus the #IAPH2022 Sustainability Award winner in the category digitalisation. At the Risk and Resilience Committee, the Russia-Ukraine conflict and implications for world ports will be discussed, next to an update on the work-in-progress of the IAPH guidelines on risk and resilience from port expert authors. In addition, there will be  a presentation by Fabian Steinmann from the Global Resilience Institute in Boston on how the UK airline industry looks at resilience and a presentation on climate resilience by Solomon Islands Port Authority. Registration for all technical committee meetings can be done here.
