A number of port research themes to be explored by economists intersted in maritime and ports have been discussed during the 13th meeting of the Port Performance Research Network (PPRN), that took place at the eve of the 2015 Annual Conference of the International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) on Sunday 23rd August, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
PortEconomics members have shaped the agenda via a number of interventions, and PortEconomics provides you four of these presentations:
- Research on Reporting Sustainability, by Michael Dooms
- North America: Constructs for Measuring Effectiveness in Port Service Delivery, by Mary R. Brooks
- Climate Change and Adaptation Planning for Ports: by Adolf Ng
- Port risk analysis and management as an emerging research theme, by Jasmin Lam
PPRN is an informal network of maritime economists interested in issues of port policy. It was established at the IAME 2001 meeting in Hong Kong to undertake empirical testing of port governance, and is currently coordinated by PortEconomics members Drs. Mary R. Brooks and Thanos A. Pallis. The 14th Annual meeting is expected to take place on the 24th of August 2016, in Hamburg, at the eve of the IAME 2016 Annual Conference.
