Central Dredging Association’s Webinar in January

The Central Dredging Association’s (CEDA) webinar, entitled “Adaptive Management for Dredging”, is scheduled for January 19, 2016 from 14:00-15:00 hrs CET.

The webinar will be presented on behalf of the CEDA Environment Commission by Gerard van by Gerard van Raalte, Chairman of the CEDA Working Group on Adaptive Management, senior expert at Royal Boskalis Westminster/Hydronamic, the Netherlands.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions via text during the webinar, and verbally after the presentation.

The webinar will outline concepts of integrating adaptive management for the enhancement of the environment into dredging activities (inclusive of placement/disposal/reclamation).

It will also offer information on how to successfully apply adaptive management in dredging projects, illustrated along a number of case histories.

Adaptive Management

Dredging projects are often permitted with license conditions or regulations based on an assessment of the potential environmental effects.

For those dredging projects where the environmental outcome can, with less certainty, be assessed, a sequence of more intense and targeted monitoring, impact assessment and management actions might be implemented. This sequence of activities is understood as ‘adaptive management’ (AM), although various ways of implementation may exist.

AM can be an efficient and cost-effective management process in dredging projects, it helps to achieve goals by addressing uncertainty and by incorporating adaptivity in decision-making as the project develops.

AM in dredging projects represents a “modern” approach and has the potential to become good practice in the future, although is not likely to become good practice for all kinds of dredging projects.

The need for integrating AM in dredging projects is already becoming recognized, but will probably increase in future.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
