Countdown to the next Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Course in March


Worldwide there is an increasingly high expectation that infrastructure projects should contribute to achieving
the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Thus, if you are a dredging professional working on infrastructure
development projects, you are probably working towards achieving sustainable and resilient
solutions that have a positive impact as well. You may even have already purchased the CEDA-IADC book
Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure but he CEDA-IADC joint course, of the same name, helps to
put the text into context.

What to expect

This second version of the joint course on Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure is packed full with valuable
knowledge and designed specifically to help you apply sustainable best practice to your dredging
projects. In four livestreamed sessions, spread over four days, three industry experts will address
questions including:

  • What is the role of dredging in the global drive towards more sustainable development?
  • How can water infrastructure be designed and implemented in a more sustainable and resilient way while aligning with natural and socio-economic systems?
  • How can the potential positive effects of infrastructure development be assessed and stimulated as well as compared with potential negative effects?
  • What equipment and which sediment management options are available today?
  • A brief introduction to what knowledge and tools are available to make sound choices and control the project.
