Extreme weather 'costs and consequences' survey launched at IAPH conference

Posted by

Please take part in the Navigating a Changing Climate survey on extreme weather events, which was launched at the IAPH Guangzhou 2019 World Ports Conference.

The purpose of this survey is to gather information from port operators around the world to improve understanding of the consequences and costs of extreme meteorological and/or oceanographic events.  The survey includes questions on port or waterway closures, delays and downtime, and on clean up, maintenance, damage repair and other measures.  It also considers wider issues, for example the role of warning systems.  

Results from the survey will be published in an aggregate format to help inform port and waterway decisions on investment in resilience by facilitating understanding of the consequences of inaction.  No individual port or waterway data will be published; individual respondent's data will be kept strictly confidential.
