Following the enthusiastic response of CEDA Dredging Days attendees, the interactive session is now a standard component of the CEDA Dredging Days technical programme.

During this year’s session we will focus on interactions with stakeholders in project design and construction. Dredging projects literally turn water into land and land into water. As a consequence, there are often many stakeholders involved with a multitude of interests and backgrounds. This is why such projects are usually complex and high-profile. Thoughtful management of these varied interests is essential to a project’s operational, reputational and financial success. Effective incorporation of their interests can only be achieved by early, and inclusive identification, and the selection and appropriate engagement of stakeholders. 

During the session, we will explore and experience what it means to engage stakeholders, in practice, and what benefits it can bring. We will draw on the recently published CEDA/IADC book: Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure, and the highly acclaimed interactive session on stakeholder involvement in the conference, in November 2018, which celebrated the launch of the book.

The session will be educational, inspirational, invigorating and lots of fun!
