First, on June 19th at Adaptation Futures 2018 in Cape Town, South Africa, where Jan Brooke presented the work of PIANC’s Working Group 178 at this biennial, global gathering of over 1300 climate change scientists, practitioners, business leaders and policymakers from around the world.  Find out more at https://adaptationfutures2018.capetown/ and see the attached presentation.

Second, on June 26th the work of Navigating a Changing Climate (NaCC) was introduced to participants at the 11th International Harbour Masters Congress, held in London, UK and run by NaCC partner IHMA.  Here the focus was on the future need for adaptation of navigation infrastructure.  The NaCC partnership’s survey on the costs and consequences of extreme weather events was also introduced.  See http://navclimate.pianc.org/about/navclimate-news/survey-understanding-the-consequences-of-extreme-events 

And then on 27th June at the EcoShape Conference 'Scaling up Building with Nature', in Utrecht, The Netherlands.  At this event, the emphasis was on the role of ‘Working with Nature’ and nature-based solutions in improving the resilience of navigation infrastructure.  You can find more on this at https://www.ecoshape.org/en/ecoshape-conference-scaling-up-building-with-nature/
