IAPH Technical Committee - Cruise
Following a pause of two years, the Cruise Committee will resume its activities in Vancouver. The main aim of the meeting is to define a work programme for the Committee for the coming years, with a strong emphasis on sustainability, including reduction of emissions and sustainable tourism. The Committee will also liaise with related IAPH activities, such as the new 'at berth' module of the Environmental Ship Index (ESI). In achieving its work programme, the IAPH Cruise Committee will be working closely with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) which will be represented at the Vancouver meeting by Nikos Mertzanidis, Director of Government Affairs, who will give a presentation on CLIA's priorities in working with the global ports community.
