The PTGCC is a permanent, cross-Commission PIANC Task Group providing a common platform for coordinated work to support PIANC members and the wider sector in addressing climate change mitigation and adaptation issues.
Navigating a Changing Climate (NavClimate) is a Global Climate Action initiative under the United Nations’ (UNFCCC) non-state actor workstream. NavClimate partners share, develop and disseminate resources to support mitigation and adaptation efforts.
Launched by the PIANC President at the international COP25 in Madrid, Spain in 2019, the Declaration is a ‘call to arms’ to accelerate and scale up action to reduce the potentially significant risks that climate change poses to the navigation sector.
The PTGCC provides PIANC’s input into Navigating a Changing Climate. The PTGCC frequently meets jointly with the NavClimate partner associations. The relationship between the PTGCC and the Navigating a Changing Climate initiative are explained in the diagram here.
The good practice guidance on Climate Change Adaptation Planning for Ports and Inland Waterways prepared by PIANC’s technical Working Group 178 was published in 2020.
