Join us virtually at COP26

COP26 in Glasgow is just around the corner with various events of relevance to the ports and navigation sector, for example:

- on 2 and 3 November, a conference organised by the UK ports entitled ‘Practical climate change adaptation solutions for ports’.  It is a hybrid (in person and online) event, free to attend, with port speakers from around the globe.  You can find details and register at https://www.maritimeuk.org/imh-2021/imh-events/adaptation-solutions-ports/

- on 8 November, the launch of the ‘Sediment Management and Climate Change’ pledge.  This important output of the SedNet-NavClimate workshop in February 2021 and the follow up EnviCom-NavClimate workshop in September 2021, is now open for endorsement on the SedNet website at https://sednet.org/climate-change-and-sediment-management-pledge/.  The pledge is potentially relevant to many in the navigation and dredging sectors, so please take a look, and if you share our ambitions – endorse the pledge!  The more signatories we have, the more impact we can have...
