    The article discusses the growing threat of climate change impacts on seaports and their importance for sustainable trade and development. Seaports are crucial for global trade and the blue economy, but they are highly exposed to climate-related hazards such as rising sea levels, storm surges, and flooding. As climate change intensifies, economic losses from damages and disruptions to supply chains may increase significantly. The need to enhance climate resilience for seaports is urgent, particularly for small island developing states and vulnerable coastal nations. Adaptation measures, risk assessments, and investment in resilient infrastructure are essential to mitigate the risks and ensure sustainable development and trade.
