Adaptive management is a decision-making framework that can be applied at different stages of a dredging project. Contractors can utilise adaptive management to adapt their operational strategies within different phases of a project, to record the effects of their works and to predict the impacts on the ecosystem and its services. Doing so, both contractor and client or project owner can cater for uncertainties in their decision-making during the project. The latest Facts About: Adaptive Management gives an overview of this decision-making framework, how it works and how contractors can apply it for their dredging project.
About the Series

These leaflets are part of IADC's on-going effort to support clients, consultants and others in understanding the fundamental principles of dredging and maritime construction because providing effective information to all involved parties is an essential element in achieving a successful dredging project.
