Think Climate Coalition

Think Climate is a multi-stakeholder coalition of nine associations with interests in waterborne transport infrastructure.

Inland Waterways International


The Partners comprise of:

  • The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure (PIANC)
  • International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH)
  • International Harbour Masters’ Association (IHMA)
  • International Maritime Pilots’ Association (IMPA)
  • Smart Freight Centre (SFC)
  • European Dredging Association (EuDA)
  • European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO)
  • Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST)
  • Inland Waterways International (IWI)

Through an unprecedented collaboration, the partners in PIANC’s Think Climate coalition have committed to work together to support the inland and maritime navigation infrastructure sector as they respond to climate change.

By furthering understanding, providing targeted technical support, and building capacity, the coalition’s ‘Navigating a Changing Climate’ initiative will encourage the owners, operators and users of waterborne transport infrastructure to:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and shift to low carbon maritime and inland navigation infrastructure
  • Act urgently to strengthen resilience and improve preparedness to adapt to the changing climate
