Maritime Port Resilience: Lessons from the 2017 Hurricane Season

Hosted by Committee on the Marine Transportation System

The 2017 hurricane season was a time of significant disruption to the Marine Transportation System (MTS), resulting in significant economic, social, and logistical challenges. As we examine the MTS response and recovery to these events, we are provided with the opportunity to garner recommendations for more resilient MTS infrastructure through the consideration of interagency cooperation and best practices.

Please join the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) during National Infrastructure Week 2018 for a discussion on port infrastructure resilience and lessons learned from the dramatic 2017 hurricane season. This discussion provides the opportunity to learn from Federal MTS agencies and stakeholders, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Homeland Security Office of Infrastructure Protection, and the American Association of Port Authorities.

The U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) is a cabinet-level partnership of over 30 Federal Government departments, agencies, and bureaus that coordinate and recommend policies, and report to the President on improving the U.S. Marine Transportation System (MTS).

Please RSVP to Jaya.Ghosh@cmts.gov by Tuesday, May 15, 2018. RSVP is required to be added to the USDOT Building Access List.
