Climate risk and business: Ports
Terminal Marítimo Muelles el Bosque Cartagena, Colombia:
This report considers the vulnerability of physical infrastructure at ports and port activities to the changes in climate and the risks that could manifest through changes in the level or patterns of shipping, increased flooding affecting movements within ports and causing damage to goods stored, reduced navigability of access channels and business interruption. It presents the outcomes of an assessment of the potential risks and opportunities from climate change for Terminal Marítimo Muelles el Bosque (MEB), along with analyses of climate-resilient actions that the company can consider. While the study focuses on climate change risks to MEB, it also briefly explores how other ports in Colombia can be affected by climate change.
