New UNCTAD report published – Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation for Coastal Transport Infrastructure: A Compilation of Policies and Practices
UNCTAD recently published a report entitled ‘Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation for Coastal Transport Infrastructure: A Compilation of Policies and Practices’ to contribute to bridging an important knowledge gap with regards to climate change impacts and adaptation for coastal transport infrastructure.
The compilation presents examples of legal, regulatory and policy approaches, as well as of reports, studies and guidance to support climate risk, vulnerability and impact assessment, and the development of effective adaptation response measures. The compilation provides an overview of each example listed and refers to the original source documents as well as other related material providing further information. Practices addressed in the document relate to a total of over 35 countries covering five continents, as well as practices that are considered of global nature.
The included material has been selected and presented with a view to informing, guiding and inspiring policy makers, national authorities, transport infrastructure planners and managers, and other interested stakeholders in their efforts to advance climate change adaptation for coastal transport infrastructure and increase levels of preparedness.
