22-03-2018 9:00 am - 23-03-2018 5:00 pm

Organised by IAPH - Two-day sustainability congress on 22 and 23 March 2018 to be organised under the aegis of IAPH (International Association of Ports and Harbors), together with AAPA (American Association of Port Authorities), ESPO (European Sea Ports Organisation), AIVP (International Association of Cities and Ports) and PIANC (World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure) by the Port of Antwerp in cooperation with IAPH. The aim is to transform and expand the existing World Ports Climate Initiative (WPCI) so that ports around the world can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Convention. The international event focuses primarily on the integration of the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) within the port/maritime sector.


16-10-2019 2:00 pm -5:30 pm

The EU plans to go climate-neutral by 2050.
So does inland shipping !

On 16 October, innovative vessels call the port of Brussels to show their journey towards decarbonisation. Hydrogen and electricity become part of the propulsion mix. Guests will be able to board vessels and discover the new technologies.

Come and discover the innovative inland vessels which have embarked on that journey and test solutions that bring pollution down too.


30-04-2020 1:30 pm -5:00 pm

Project Officer to the International Harbour Masters’ Association, Captain Ben van Scherpenzeel, will participate in the Port Symposium “A holistic approach to standards for port operational data in maritime supply chains”, to be held 30 April 2020 at IMO headquarters in London.

The symposium will address the priorities and challenges in the development of international standards for operational data in ports, including for berth to berth navigation, the ship-port interface and the end-to-end supply chain. The programme is in line with the findings of the IMO Global Industry Alliance (GIA) for Low Carbon Shipping, to realize e.g. Just In Time Arrivals.

Remote participation in the event is open to IMO’s Member Governments, IGOs, NGOs and the general public and information regarding livestreaming the event can be found at

Navigating a Changing Climate and SedNet are collaborating to run a workshop exploring areas of comment interest. The workshop, entitled 'Sediment Management Opportunities to Address the Climate Change Challenge', will comprise two consecutive half-day sessions. Its aim is to facilitate knowledge exchange, disseminate good practice, highlight opportunities, and identify gaps in understanding or research needs in relation to the four topics mentioned below, with an emphasis on ports, waterways, dredging and associated infrastructure/activities.

It promises to be an inspiring workshop for sediment practitioners (policy and management) as well as scientists. Invited key-note speakers and selected abstracts will address in the following (non-parallel) sessions – with room for Q&A – these four topics:

  1. Role of sediment management in carbon sequestration and storage: opportunities to contribute to a net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions;
  2. Sediments and climate change adaptation: seeking flexible and adaptive solutions to strengthen resilience and adapt port and navigation infrastructure and operations;
  3. Habitat enhancement and creation, Working-with-Nature and other nature-based solutions;
  4. Sediment management, circular economy and the waste hierarchy: reduce, reuse, recycle.

The four workshop sessions conclude with a panel discussion and an interactive session with the audience to determine:

  • Key climate change-related challenges for sediment managers;
  • Key opportunities for sediment management to contribute to addressing the climate change challenge; 
  • Key topics for further research and development.



If you wish to participate to this online workshop, please indicate so by email to the SedNet Secretariat () before 6 February 2021.

There is no fee for participation.
