With growing environmental awareness and increasing climate pressures on low-lying deltas, modern-day society puts incredibly strong demands on the sustainability of water infrastructure projects. Classic approaches towards the design and implementation of such projects no longer suffice in satisfying these demands. Instead, radically different methods are needed which demand multidisciplinary project teams to adopt entirely new ways of thinking, acting and interacting. Application of these new methods results in innovative water infrastructure solutions that meet the primary functional requirements while at the same time delivering added value for nature and society as an inherent part of project development.
The book Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure presents state-of-the-art guidance to achieve dredging projects that fulfil their primary functional requirement while adding value to the (natural and socio-economic) system. The publication promotes the message that through a thorough understanding of these systems and with the proactive engagement of stakeholders throughout a project's phases, a value-added project can be successfully achieved.
A team of experts from academic institutes, dredging contractors, consultants and project owners have worked for nearly five years on the book. In addition, the book has also been reviewed by experienced experts and practitioners.
