CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION

Preparing city ports for the consequences of climate change

ANTICIPATING THE CONSEQUENCES OF CLIMATE CHANGE FOR RIVER OR MARITIME CITY PORTS
  1. Including joint City Port measures to prevent inundation and flooding of the port and connecting infrastructure in strategic planning documents, and through a suitable land management policy.
     

  2. Promoting the renaturalisation of river banks and coastline to slow erosion and the impacts of extreme storm events.
     

  3. Introducing an early warning system to reduce the human and economic consequences of exceptional climatic phenomena.
     

  4. Considering other climatic changes, such as the consequences of drought and high temperatures, on port systems, supply chains, and labor.
     

  5. Making resilience and carbon neutrality a priority in the design and operation of City Port installations with the use of the latest technologies in emissions reduction and CO2 capture/storage.

ABP's Alan Tinline makes the point that any tracking of emissions needs to cover extremely diverse assets, some of them having a large impact: “In one of our ports we’ve got seven constantly moving tugs - they never stop,” he says. And then there’s the fluidity of the picture when it comes to bulk: “For example, we had a 38% reduction in coal throughput – but the way we handle the biomass taking its place, that’s completely different, needing completely different pieces of kit.”
