Navigating a Changing Climate – THE climate change conference for ports and inland waterways

 Brussels, Belgium.  27 – 28 March 2017

Climate change is not only about the environment, and it is not only about sea level rise.  Climate change will affect port and waterway’s day-to-day activities in countries across the world, whether through flooding and drainage issues associated with extreme rainfall; damage and downtime due to storms or high winds; or operational challenges associated with extreme heat to name but a few.

Through the presentation of good practice case studies, this conference will help port and waterway operators, engineers and planners understand why climate change matters to those responsible for waterborne transport infrastructure.
