This briefing featured two port systems that are leading the way to adapt to climate impacts while reducing port greenhouse gas emissions. Joshua Berger, Governor Inslee’s Maritime Sector Lead and the chair and founder of Washington Maritime Blue, discussed Washington State’s collaborative effort to build a sustainable blue economy. The Maryland Port Administration's Jill Lemke and Kristen Keene discussed specific adaptation and resilience projects at the Port of Baltimore—including projects that have already been tested by extreme weather impacts.

This briefing was part of our series on climate mitigation and adaptation in the transportation sector. The series covered ports, aviation, and public transit.
