BTJ 6/17 - Adapt or else. How ports can mitigate climate change risks

The increasing temperature of the atmosphere causes the temperature of the sea to grow. As a consequence, sea levels are rising. 

By the end of this century, the sea will be one meter above the current point. Many areas in the world are already negatively affected by the climate change. Several islands in the Pacific have been claimed by sea-level rise, while parts of Miami, New York, and New Jersey are chronically flooded.

One thing for sure, with time, seaports, including in the Baltic, will be more and more subjected to this new pressure, along with other extreme weather phenomena. How can we then make our ports resilient to climate change?
