Survey on understanding the consequences of extreme weather events
The partners in the international Navigating a Changing Climate initiative have teamed together to launch a survey to collect information about the effects of extreme weather events on seaports and inland ports.
The purpose of the survey is to gather information from port operators around the world to improve understanding of the consequences and costs of extreme meteorological and/or oceanographic events.
Results will be presented anonymously in an aggregate format; no individual port or waterway will be identified. The data collected will be held by the International Association of Ports and Harbors on behalf of the Navigating a Changing Climate partner associations.
The consolidated report will provide a new resource for use by the wider navigation infrastructure sector, helping seaports and inland ports make the right decision for their own business.
