The Navigating a Changing Climate Initiative is led by PIANC on behalf of the Think Climate coalition. Think Climate is a multi-stakeholder coalition of ten associations with interests in waterborne transport infrastructure.

By furthering understanding, providing targeted technical support, and building capacity, the coalition’s ‘Navigating a Changing Climate’ initiative will encourage the owners, operators and users of waterborne transport infrastructure to:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and shift to low carbon maritime and inland navigation infrastructure
  • Act urgently to strengthen resilience and improve preparedness to adapt to the changing climate
