Here we list 3rd-party events that are not, in any way, linked to the Navigating a Changing Climate Initative or the partners of the Think Climate Coalition, but might be of interest to users of this website.
We are delighted that the 2018 IHMA Congress will be held in the international maritime centre of London.
This will be the ‘must attend’ event of 2018 for all those with a responsibility for port and marine operations and the industry that supports them.

To help the integration of biodiversity into decision-making at the early stages in projects, the IBAT Alliance have developed the Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool (IBAT). IBAT is a high-level biodiversity screening tool that – among other applications - can be used at an early stage in a project to understand potential biodiversity risks and opportunities. It is an online data discovery, visualisation, and dissemination tool that provides users with unique single point access to the most authoritative global datasets on biodiversity and conservation. These include the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the World Database of Protected Areas, and Key Biodiversity Areas.
This webinar will give an overview of how to easily access these data for your projects including the terms and conditions for using these data.

The Logistics Emissions Accounting and Reduction Network project (LEARN) mobilizes business to reduce their carbon footprint across their global logistics supply chains through improved emissions calculation, assurance and reporting. LEARN project was created to help businesses measure their logistics emissions; have the opportunity to make informed decisions and lead to improved supply chain efficiencies.
It’s built on and sought to improve the ‘GLEC Framework for Logistics Emissions Methodologies’ that combines existing methods and fills gaps, making carbon accounting work for industry.

The World Resources Forum 2019 puts its focus on closing resource loops and circular economy in practice, as a lever to achieve the Agenda 2030 commitments. The challenge we face of a low carbon and circular society is well known. With a view to the post-2020 era, WRF2019 takes stock of solutions and practices taking place in many parts of society to move from a linear and fossil to a circular and low carbon economy. Where are the opportunities, what works, what does not, and why? Thematic ‘Global Sessions’, with inspiring voices from leading experts will set the scene on key topics among which the role of ports is addressed.
Ports are truly fascinating places where economic activity, logistics and services come together. Their century-old role in fostering welfare and trade now enters a completely new era, defined by climate change and the need for sustainable added value alongside new forms of logistics. It is no longer merely about the expansion of central hubs for global trade flows, ports are looking for new approaches vis-à-vis their hinterland, industrial clusters and their spatial conception. This new context, emerging from climate policies and the growing number of initiatives to close material loops, triggers a reflection on the future role of ports.
