Anticipating the consequences of climate change for river or maritime city ports :
1Including joint City Port measures to prevent inundation and flooding of the port and connecting infrastructure in strategic planning documents, and through a suitable land management policy.
2Promoting the renaturalisation of river banks and coastline to slow erosion and the impacts of extreme storm events.
3Introducing an early warning system to reduce the human and economic consequences of exceptional climatic phenomena.
4Considering other climatic changes, such as the consequences of drought and high temperatures, on port systems, supply chains, and labor.
5Making resilience and carbon neutrality a priority in the design and operation of City Port installations with the use of the latest technologies in emissions reduction and CO2 capture/storage.
