WODA stands for World Organisation of Dredging Associations. It is an independent, non-profit, professional organization, composed of three separate, autonomous dredging associations, with separate corporate structures: the Western Dredging Association (WEDA) serving the Americas, the Central Dredging Association (CEDA) serving Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, and the Eastern Dredging Association (EADA) serving the Asian and Pacific region.

CEDA is an established authority and the leading independent forum for the professional dredging community, and associated industries, in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. It represents dredging professionals and organizations, from government, academia and business, in the region and fosters and promotes the understanding and advancement of dredging to the wider community. It is a recognized reference point for high-quality specialist knowledge on all aspects of dredging and provides a multidisciplinary network for professional contacts. CEDA members are representative of consultancies, research and educational institutions, port authorities, government agencies, dredging contractors, designers and builders of dredging vessels, suppliers of ancillary equipment, and organizations providing a whole range of related services.
