CEDA Working Groups

Ad-hoc working groups or task groups are set up regularly to perform certain task. They bring together the wealth of up-to-date specialist knowledge and the experience of top international experts with broadly diverse backgrounds. Normally, these groups have a definite life time, for instance the working groups that produce CEDA information and position papers complete their works approximately within one year.

Currently the following working groups are operational:

CEDA Working Group on Certification of Sustainable Marine and Freshwater Infrastructure Projects
CEDA Working Group on Cables (WGC)
CEDA Working Group on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions and uptake from sediment in dredging
CEDA Working Group on Contaminants of emerging concern in sediment

Working groups that recently completed their work are:

CEDA Working Group on Assessing Environmental Turbidity Limits (WGETL)
CEDA Working Group on Effective Contract Type Selection (WGECS) 
CEDA Working Group on Beneficial Use of Sediment (WGBU)
CEDA Working Group on Energy Efficiency (WGEE)
CEDA Working Group on Seafloor Integrity (WGSI)
CEDA Working Group on Adaptive Management

WODA Working Groups
During WODCON XXII in Shanghai, China, in 2019, the three associations making up WODA (CEDA, EADA, and WEDA) decided to set up WODA working groups to jointly address topics of common interest. Currently there are three WODA Working Groups:

WODA Reservoir Dredging Working Group
WODA Safety in Dredging Working Group
WODA Working Group on Deep Sea Mining

Other Working Groups
