Maritime UK – Practical climate change adaptation challenges and good practice solutions for ports
2 November - 3 November
Ports, like other forms of transport infrastructure, are potentially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, particularly extreme weather. If the sector is to be well-prepared to face these changes, urgent action is needed to adapt infrastructure and to improve the climate-resilience of both assets and operations.
In order to help promote such action, this workshop aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences and the sharing of good practice. Presentations from port practitioners around the world will be followed by participative panel discussion sessions.
Amongst others, the workshop will include speakers from ports in the UK, USA, Argentina, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Dubai, Malaysia and Australia.
This event will take place in the COP26 International Maritime Hub.
