Ports and coasts are under threat due increased hydro-meteorological hazards and large investment, which increase the consequences. These include direct damage to infrastructure, but also indirect damage, as supply lines are disrupted. Impacts also concern the environment, societal and cultural assets. This workshop will introduce EU projects RISC-KIT and PEARL and work from German projects, and show how the integration of natural, socio-cultural, economic, ecologic and political research enhances resilience and reduces risks for the ports and estuaries of Kiel, Hamburg and Bremen.
Moderator: Mary Papaschinopoulou (IHK Nord, Brussels - Belgium)
