Interview: Investing in Stakeholder Engagement

During the recent Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference in Amsterdam, we interviewed Mr Jaap van Thiel de Vries, General Manager of Hydronamic at Boskalis, on the importance of investing in stakeholder engagement.

The stakeholder engagement is one of four key enablers that were presented in the CEDA-IADC Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure guidebook.

The guidebook, which was officially unveiled at the conference, has been designed as an authoritative guide to delivering dredging projects that enhance the natural and socio-economic systems.

In it, the four key enablers vital to the industry were discussed: the issues of valuation of ecosystem benefits, the stakeholder engagement, adaptive management of dredging projects and the beneficial use of dredged materials.

Here’s what Mr de Vries from Boskalis had to say on the importance of investing in stakeholder engagement and other dredging related topics during our conference in Amsterdam.
