ICHCA Radar: Report on natural hazard risk to global port infrastructure published in ‘Nature’
ICHCA finds or is sent a wide range of industry related learning and informative content that is not necessarily part of an immediate workstream but which we think will be of interest to members. Where these appear on our radar, we will share a summary of points of interest and provide links for members to find out more.
In this ICHCA Radar we spotlight a report published in Nature addressing the natural hazard risk to global port infrastructure from multiple natural hazards. It looks at 50 ports and quantifies the risk of cyclone, fluvial, pluvial, coastal and earthquake hazards to physical assets and services (port-specific risk) and maritime trade flows (trade risk), finding that 86% of the ports considered are exposed to more than three natural hazards.
