This conference, CEDA’s third event on the Iberian Peninsula, was co-organised and hosted by the Portuguese Engineers Association (OE) at their premises in central Lisbon, Portugal, on 27-28 October 2016. 

Within the central theme – Dredging for sustainable port development – the conference addressed key topics relevant to the success of port dredging and sediment management projects with a focus on the Iberian context. The topics also reflected current thinking on what “sustainability” means in that context.

This important conference provided a valuable platform for the exchange of knowledge, and best practice, between professionals involved in dredging on the Iberian Peninsula and the broader international CEDA community.
