Abstract/Summary This document reports on research carried out for work package 1 - to better understand the complexity (and uncertainty) of the future climate and non-climate risks that are likely to affect future port operations in Australia. The activity involved close liaison with both information providers and the case study ports, with the quantitative and qualitative data then used to inform the assessments of functional and infrastructural resilience (project work packages 2 and 3). The report highlights some of the many challenges involved when assessing the risks that Australian ports need to contend with; not only contributing to the knowledge-base but also providing detail of an integrated assessment methodology that can be replicated for other cases.
