Abstract

This study examines port-based strategies that improve environmental performance and promote sustainable solutions for combating climate change in the context of large urban areas. Using Barcelona as a case study, this investigation analyzes past and present hinterland initiatives that could successfully facilitate growth and resilience of this port city. The geographically-sensitive location of this European seaport on the Mediterranean Sea results in high volumes of freight traffic and cruise passengers, and it presents an interesting case study for addressing the sustainability challenges associated with freight transport paths and urban areas.
