We are pleased to announce the programme of the CEDA-IADC conference “Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure” to take place on 19-20 November 2018 in Amsterdam. The conference is based on the forthcoming guidebook with the same title.

The two-day programme comprises of six highly interactive technical sessions with contributions from internationally renowned scientists and practitioners. A networking area with displays by key players of the field, organized by Dredging Today will enhance knowledge exchange. For details please visit 


With growing environmental awareness and increasing climate pressures on low-lying deltas, modern-day society puts incredibly strong demands on the sustainability of water infrastructure projects. Classic approaches towards the design and implementation of such projects no longer suffice in satisfying these demands. Instead, radically different methods are needed which demand multidisciplinary project teams to adopt entirely new ways of thinking, acting and interacting. Application of these new methods results in innovative water infrastructure solutions that meet the primary functional requirements while at the same time delivering added value for nature and society as an inherent part of project development.


At this high-profile conference, new avenues towards the development of sustainable water infrastructure will be explored, and translated to your own project context. Experience first-hand what it means to apply this new approach in practice. Four key enablers to ensure success will be discussed, including the issues of valuation of ecosystem benefits, stakeholder engagement, adaptive management of dredging projects and the beneficial use of dredged materials.


The Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference will confer quintessential knowledge for planners, designers, decision makers, regulators, contractors, project owners and environmental advocates.
