Adaptation Strategies for Seaport Decision-Making Systems

Adaptation Strategies for Seaport Decision-Making Systems 

Seaports play a critical role in the economy at every scale.
They are governed by a complex system of public, private, and public/private interests. Climate-change adaptation will require planning and coordination from a variety of actors in a given seaport decision-making system. This research area considers the impacts of climate change, the strategies for resilience building, and the barriers that prevent implementation of adaptation measures. Current case studies include
Gulfport (MS), Providence (RI), and Kingston (Jamaica).
