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.

    Breakthrough Ambition

    ESPO’s Climate Change Adaptation Position Paper highlights the urgency of climate change adaptation for European ports. It emphasizes the serious threat climate change poses to port infrastructure, including rising sea levels and extreme weather events. The paper calls for mainstreaming climate change adaptation into EU legislation and financial instruments. Strengthened funding options are urged to cover the increased financial burden of adapting port infrastructure. The importance of reliable data-driven climate proofing guidance and the recognition of ports as critical infrastructure are emphasized. ESPO urges immediate action to integrate climate adaptation strategies into port planning and decision-making to ensure their resilience and sustainability in the face of climate challenges.
