Abstract:Climate Change and its impacts are widely discussed in science community and in the public. However, the discussion about the impact of climate change on inland and marine navigation is still at its beginning. Against this background PIANC has set up a task group on climate and navigation to bring the available knowledge together and give an outlook about the necessary actions to support sustainable navigation. Results of the PIANC task group on climate change and navigation will be given with a deeper look to possible consequences of climate change on inland navigation exemplified for the river Rhine in Germany, the busiest inland waterway in Europe.
