The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development earlier this week organised a webinar to discuss the findings of the SAVi Assessment of the Hondsbossche and Pettemer (H&P) sea dunes.
The result of the SAVi assessment of the Hondsbossche and Pettemer sea dunes shows the benefits of nature-based solutions and the additional value that can be created.
The assessment quantifies the ecosystem services and economic impacts of the new dune landscape under several flood scenarios and compares this nature-based infrastructure solution to a conventional dike reinforcement.
The study finds that under all scenarios, the investment in the artificial sand dunes offers greater net benefits than the grey alternative of building a sheet pile wall.
This webinar is especially of interest for policymakers, infrastructure developers, investors and other stakeholders with an interest in green infrastructure.
But also for both technical and non-technical professionals in dredging-related industries like consultants and advisors at port and harbour authorities, offshore companies and other organisations that execute dredging projects.
