Many of the world’s great cities such as New York, Rio de Janeiro and Shanghai are located on the coast, with working harbours that are part of the fundamental fabric of those communities.
Water and Sediment Quality
Multiple Uses and Users
The World Harbour Project (WHP) will tackle issues around the multiple uses of harbours by bringing together international institutions and agencies concerned with the increasing challenges they face.
The vision is to facilitate and link programs that have a focus on investigating and restoring ecosystem functioning and the development of management best-practices by means of four working groups—Water and Sediment Quality, Green Engineering, Conflict Resolution and Education.
