PortKLIMA identifies global warming impact

BREMEN. How vulnerable are German seaports to the consequences of global warming, and what measures need to be taken to counteract these effects? Over the past three years, these questions have been addressed by “PortKLIMA” project which was primarily conducted by the River and Coastal Engineering Institute at the Bremen University of Applied Sciences and funded by bremenports. The project’s final report whose title translates roughly as “Seaports and climate change – development and pilot implementation of educational modules for integrating adaptation to climate change in the planning, construction and operation of seaports in Germany,” was submitted in December. The results have been incorporated into numerous educational materials that are readily available on the project’s website. Furthermore, they will be included in adaptation concepts for the port facilities in Bremen and Bremerhaven, which are currently being developed by bremenports as part of the “Climate Adaptation Strategy Bremen/Bremerhaven”. The participants of the project funded by the Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMU), included the port management companies from Brake, Cuxhaven, Hamburg, Lübeck, Rostock and Wismar.
