Impacts, Adaptation, and Ports

The International Finance Corporation has released a lengthy report on climate change impacts and adaptation in ports, focusing on the specific case study ofTerminal Maritimo Muelles El Bosque (MEB) in Cartagena, Colombia. The study examines both the direct impacts of climate chagne on MEB operations as well as potential indirect impacts arising from the effects of climate change on the global economy and trade. It wraps up with a few specific adaptation options including elevating infrastructure, increasing drainage, expanding operations relating to climate-resilient economic activities, and insurance.
