A new report on the global study on disaster resilience of airports (Phase 1) has been published by the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) and Netherlands Airport Consultants (NACO).


The study aims to understand the perception and practice of airport managers and operators on disaster risk management and resilience. Using online survey and focus group discussions findings indicate, that airports face increasing physical and transition risks from climate change and human-induced disasters. In addition, findings suggest risk assessment and resilience practices vary by region, ownership model and airport size. Recommending further research and knowledge sharing, regulations and mandates, and airport practices in adaptive capacity as the key areas to improve airport resilience.
