The International Association of Port and Harbour (IAPH) has issued newly-created risk and resilience guidelines for ports, together with a new risk inventory portal aimed at sharing best practices on risk mitigation and management for ports. Applying the same pragmatic approach by the IAPH-WPSP COVID19 Taskforce, the newly issued guidelines are the first IAPH tool produced by expert regular and associate members from the IAPH Risk and Resilience Committee which aims to support ports in establishing a structured approach towards risk management, business continuity and organizational preparedness. To assist in this, IAPH has also established an online risk inventory portal which will act as a central hub for mutual learning from ports which have dealt with or which are proactively preparing for specific events and incidents. In addition to containing the three crucial infographics that form the backbone of the guidelines, it offers the first two examples on how ports deal with specific threats, with illustrative case studies from member ports. Effectively managing business continuity during the next crisis has become an essential port requirement.
