Policy Brief: Airports’ resilience and adaptation to changing climate
The Airports’ Resilience and Adaptation to a Changing Climate policy brief has been produced to support airport operators and help them better understand the risks related to more adverse weather events, and consider conducting risk assessments to define their adaption plans for both existing and new infrastructure and operations. It helps airport management teams in several different departments to learn from their peers as it includes case studies of best practice adopted at other airports.
The brief includes case studies from airports in Norway, Australia, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Amsterdam and Singapore. It also provides recommendations, and an extensive rundown of potential climate stressors and their related potential impacts on infrastructure and operations, and a non-exhaustive list of airports that have already started to work on resilience and adaptation to climate change.
