MI-SAFE Package Webinar Set for Next Week

Deltares has just announced that “The MI-SAFE package: Resources to implement nature based flood defense” webinar will take place on July 20, 2017, from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM CEST.

“Nature-based solutions are becoming recognized as amongst the most sustainable and cost-effective approaches towards coastal flood and erosion risk reduction. So far, however, such solutions have not been widely implemented,” said Deltares.

“The quantifiable demonstration of benefits has been lacking and it is clear that coastal managers and engineers need trusted and practical tools that provide them with the desired quantitative information on key flood hazard parameters.”

The FAST project (Foreshore Assessment using Space Technology) has developed the MI-SAFE package to help meet this requirement.

MI-SAFE is a combination of Earth Observation information and numerical modelling, packaged into open source and online products and services that demonstrate how coastal vegetation and foreshore areas can contribute to meet flood risk challenges.

In this webinar, the MI-SAFE team of experts will explain the science behind the MI-SAFE package, the resources that this package of services offers, and the access routes for a range of user types.

The webinar presenters are:

  • Dr Daphne van der Wal, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), the Netherlands;
  • Dr Iris Möller, University of Cambridge, UK;
  • Dr Gloria Peralta, University of Cadiz, Spain;
  • Drs Mindert de Vries, Deltares, the Netherlands.

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.
