Upgrading naval ports and facilities to withstand growing climate hazards. 
Naval base climate adaptation

Climate change is here, and naval ports, and other facilities are already feeling its effects. Building resilience is essential in order to serve your fleet.

However fast carbon emissions fall, sea levels are now certain to rise – and climate hazards will become more frequent and severe – for many decades to come. Wherever you are in the world, your naval infrastructure will need to adapt to remain operational. 

To make the right adaptions, you need to understand your base’s specific climate risk. And with constantly evolving regulations and government targets, knowing the best way to protect your assets, infrastructure, and operations for the future can be difficult.
