Webinar: Adaptation as it Affects the Dredging Community

Posted by

Climate change is now a fact. In addition to trends for a steady rise in global temperature and associated sea level rise it is anticipated that there will be an increase in the frequency of extreme events like storms, surges, floods and droughts. These changing conditions may induce changes in erosion and sedimentation patterns, with potential consequences for dredging requirements, locations and volumes. Webinar participants will learn about:

- The potential implications and adaptation measures for different types of environments, illustrated with case study

- The importance of dredging, the role of the dredging community and crucial factors for an adaptive and integrated approach.

The webinar is based upon a CEDA position paper on climate change adaptation as it affects the dredging community.
