Various risk-based methods are used to assess environmental impacts from dredging and dredged material management activities.
Environmental Guidelines for Aquatic, nearshore and upland Confined Disposal Facilities for Contaminated Dredged Material
Information and recommendations regarding Confined Disposal Facilities, including the management of contaminated dredged materials.
Building with Nature is an innovative approach that combines natural processes with innovative engineering methods to realise sustainable projects. Permeable dams are being utilised as part of a Building with Nature solution to help restore the eroding mangrove-mud coast of the Demak district in central Java, Indonesia.
Underwater sound from anthropogenic sources and its potential adverse effects on the marine environment is a topic of much global interest.
