Case Studies

Case Studies

Seaports require special attention because of their economic importance as essential links in supply chains, their locations in the heart of sensitive estuarine environments, and their reliance on waterfront locations. Our research uses seaports as case studies to develop a better understanding of how institutional systems define resilience, how they can change in order to adapt to climate change, and what stands in the way of implementing adaptation strategies. We have examined the following ports:

Alexandria, Egypt
Auckland, New Zealand
Bremenports, Germany
Calloa, Peru
Chennai, India
Corpus Christi, Tx USA
Gulfport, MS
Houston-Galveston, Tx USA
Kingston, Jamaica
Long Beach, Ca USA
New Orleans, La USA
New York-New Jersey, USA
