During the upcoming 34th PIANC World Congress 2018 in the heart of Panama City, the International Association of Dredging Companies and Central Dredging Association (CEDA) will debut their new joint-publication Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure.
A guidebook for the dredging industry, the publication is written by a team of expert authors representing international institutes, dredging contractors, consultants and project owners. Under development for nearly five years, Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure will be available in May 2018.
The book contains contributions from leading specialists in the field and will serve as an authoritative guide to delivering dredging projects that enhance the natural and socio-economic systems. Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure will be an invaluable resource for those responsible for delivering projects with longevity which need to do more than just the basics. Project owners, regulators, consultants, designers and contractors looking for an up-to-date reference should find it to be a useful tool.
To be held at the Hotel Riu Plaza Panama from 7 to 11 May 2018, the quadrennial conference is co-hosted by PIANC and the Panama Canal Authority and will address the most relevant topics to the waterborne transport infrastructure sector.
