19-20 November 2018. Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
How can dredging be sustainable? This is the overarching question which will be explored at the Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference.
THE BEST IS NOT ENOUGH
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.
GUIDEBOOK DEBUTS AT EVENT
The Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference is based on the forthcoming CEDA-IADC guidebook Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure which will be available worldwide in November 2018. The conference’s speakers and interactive sessions are centred around the guidebook which will be presented at the meeting and handed out to all attendees.
QUINTESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE FOR ALL ATTENDEES
Professionals and companies aiming to deliver dredging projects with longevity which also maximise the benefits to society, nature and economy will find this event to be of particular relevance. The Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference will confer quintessential knowledge for planners, designers, decision makers, regulators, contractors, project owners and environmental advocates.
NETWORK ENHANCES KNOWLEDGE
The networking area is the key meeting point for all delegates throughout the program to exchange ideas, discuss presented innovations and enhance knowledge exchange. For two days, professionals from across the industry, consultancies, government agencies, research institutes and NGOs all facing similar challenges in their search for better projects will be together under one roof.
We look forward to your participation and hope you enjoy this groundbreaking conference!
