Airports' resilience and adaptation to a changing climate

Source(s):  Airport Council International (ACI)

This document summarises the ACI members' (ACI Resolution 3/2018 on resilience and adaptation to climate change) adopted in Brussels in June 2018. It recognizes the potential impact of climate change on airport infrastructure and operations, and encouraging member airports to conduct risk assessments, develop mitigation measures and communication channels, and take climate resilience and  adaptation into consideration for their master plans.

More extreme weather- and climate-related events are expected as the climate continues to change. The frequency, intensity, spatial extent, duration and timing of events are expected to increase while slow-onset incremental changes may lead to fundamental transformation of the socio-economic system. Many airports may remain vulnerable to these events as the risks of flooding, flight disruptions and cancellations become more likely. Airports need to understand the risks and initiate adaptation measures for both existing and new infrastructure, as well as managing critical operations to become more resilient to the changing climate.
