The Port Reform Toolkit provides guidance to policymakers and practitioners on how to become more sustainable and promote environmental awareness in this sector of the shipping industry. This project, funded by the World Bank, serves as am input to review current developments in the ‘greening’ of a port and outline a road map and transferable methodology to identify and implement actions to improve the environmental performance of a port as an additional module input to the toolkit.
The shipping industry is playing a proactive role in driving change to become more sustainable and promoting environmental awareness. This reflects the introduction of international agreements, global regulations for emissions, domestic policy and consumer preference. The reformed Port Reform Toolkit proposes to include a module on how a port needs to respond to the decarbonization agenda more broadly, but also the road map and priorities to identify, measure, and implement actions to improve environmental performance of the port itself. This project is intended to provide a substantive input to the proposed module in the Port Reform Toolkit, and provide guidance to policymakers and practitioners with justification, case studies, and an approach to improve sustainability in the ports in the countries of the World Bank Group. The objective of the project is to provide policymakers and practitioners with effective decision support in undertaking sustainable and well-considered reforms of public institutions that provide, direct, and regulate port services in developing countries. Thus, a substantive input paper will be produced that reviews current developments in the ‘greening’ of a port/terminal and outline a road map, transferable methodology and priorities to identify, measure, and implement actions to improve environmental performance of the port itself.
