The need for the global aviation sector to adapt and develop resilience to the potential impacts of climate change is gaining momentum. This paper expands on previous analysis by EUROCONTROL to further clarify the expected impacts for the sector. It identifies key questions to ask when considering a climate risk assessment, looks at developing a climate adaptation plan and identifies potential resilience measures. Finally, the paper presents the outcomes of a recent workshop on Adapting Aviation to a Changing Climate identifying four key priorities for action to develop climate change resilience. It concludes that identifying knowledge gaps, raising awareness and promoting collaboration are key steps in building climate change resilience for the aviation sector at both European and global level.
