Addressing uncertainties relevant to the use of key enablers for dredging for sustainable water infrastructure projects is fundamental to success.
THE FOUR KEY ENABLERS TO DREDGING FOR SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE
Sustainable development of water infrastructure can be achieved through the use of four key enablers. These enablers are:
- Using an Ecosystem Approach
- Investing in Stakeholder Engagement
- Applying Adaptive Management
- Seeking Win-Win Solutions through Beneficial Use of Sediments
A number of uncertainties are relevant to the use of these key enablers in the development of sustainable solutions for water infrastructure, including: the nature of future conditions relevant to solution development (e.g., social, economic, environmental conditions), uncertainties relevant to the social and institutional acceptability of innovative solutions, and uncertainties related to project progress, policy development, interdisciplinary collaboration and procurement. Addressing these and other uncertainties is fundamental to successful development of sustainable infrastructure through application of the four key enablers.
