‘Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure’ made its debut in Mexico City last week, the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) said in their latest announcement. 

The 11th Ordinary Meeting of the Inter-American Committee on Ports (CIP) of the Organization of American States (OAS), held August 1-3, recognized the need for a sustainability strategy in ports, which includes environmental, social and economic aspects, with the theme of Sustainable Management for Port Competitiveness, said IADC.

This is why it was fitting that CEDA and IADC’s upcoming publication ‘Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure’ was revealed to attendees of the recent OAS-CIP meeting.

Maurice De Kok, Director Strategic Business Development at Van Oord, presented the new guidebook on behalf of IADC.

Available internationally in November 2018, the guidebook contains contributions from leading specialists in the field and will serve as an authoritative guide to delivering dredging projects that enhance the natural and socio-economic systems.
