This report synthesises the research findings from the Climate Resilient Seaports project. The intention of the project was to contribute to an emerging knowledge base relating to climate change and seaports, to test and refine assessment methodologies, and to develop tools to assist decision-making by port personnel. The content of this report draws directly from the research carried out for the three work packages. These include: 1) understanding future risks, 2) functional resilience of the port environs, and 3) structural resilience of core port infrastructure. The report also reflects on the key challenges and opportunities facing researchers, policymakers, and practitioners in making Australia’s seaports more resilient to future climate risks.
