Navigating a Changing Climate

Navigating a Changing Climate is PIANC's think climate coalition of international associations and organisations, of which the PLA is a supporter. PIANC is the world association for waterborne transport infrastructure. Click here for more information.

The partners in the Think Climate coalition share a single vision.

We want to see a responsible, well-informed and innovative sector where the owners, operators and users of inland and maritime waterborne transport infrastructure in all countries:

  • are aware of the issues associated with navigating a changing climate, and of the need to act now
  • have access to existing and new, sector-specific technical and institutional resources aimed at facilitating climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • have developed the capacity to make timely and effective decisions on mitigation and adaptation options, and
  • collaborate with others within and beyond the sector to identify and deliver integrated, resilient and sustainable solutions, with an emphasis on Working with Nature.
