Port resilience guidance, studies and tools can be useful for a wide range of practitioners but it can be hard to find the right one for the task at hand. We have assessed a wide range of tools, guidance documents and reports, which are listed below, mapped by the maritime resilience breakthroughs they support and the Port Resilience Framework for Action goals that they help to achieve.

    PIANC’s “Climate Change and Navigation” offers a comprehensive review of climate change drivers, impacts, responses, and mitigation in waterborne transport, ports, and waterways. It examines how rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and changing hydrology affect navigation infrastructure. The report emphasizes the urgency of integrating climate resilience into planning, design, and operations. It explores adaptive strategies, such as risk assessments, contingency planning, and data-driven decision-making, to manage climate-induced challenges. Mitigation measures, including green technologies and sustainable practices, are also discussed to reduce the carbon footprint of waterborne transport. The report provides crucial guidance for building climate resilience and sustainability in the maritime sector.
