UAE: CEDA-IADC Training Course Second Time in Abu Dhabi

CEDA-IADC Training Course Second Time in Abu Dhabi

After having been presented successfully on several occasions in Europe and the Middle East, the CEDA-IADC training course ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF DREDGING will be held for the second time in Abu Dhabi, on 10th and 11th December 2012.

This two-day course will provide an overview of the environmental aspects of dredging, the latest technology and equipment that apply to dredging and the management of dredged material. The seminar includes presentations and workshops.

Dredging is a necessary activity in man’s development. In the right circumstances, it may also be a very useful tool for remedying past environmental interference. However by its very nature, the act of dredging and relocating dredged material has an environmental impact.

It is therefore of the utmost importance that we should be able to determine what the extent of the impact may be on our environment.

Evaluation of environmental impact should examine both the short- and long-term effects, as well as the sustainability of the altered environment.

In addition to presentations of the subjects, participants are challenged in case studies to apply the principals discussed in order to get a full understanding of the scope and importance of the environmental aspects of dredging projects, the management of dredged material and the typical legislative conditions and controls imposed by international conventions and regional agencies.

This course is a co-operation effort of the Central Dredging Association (CEDA), the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) and the Faculty of Civil Engineering from the Higher Colleges of Technology.
