2022 - Conference Financing Sustainable Marine and Freshwater Infrastructure

How can private capital accelerate the green transition in marine and freshwater infrastructure? This is the overarching question that will be explored at the IADC conference Financing Sustainable Marine and Freshwater Infrastructure. The conference was initially planned for 17 March 2022 in Dubai. Unfortunately, given the rise in COVID-19 cases, holding the conference in March in Dubai will not be possible. Many companies are not allowing their staff to travel for training sessions and/or conferences. In addition, looking at the spread of the Omicron variant and the high infection rates worldwide, the outlook does not show signs of improving. It is therefore with regret that we have to postpone the conference. We are currently looking at options to re-schedule the conference later in the year and will keep you informed via this website or the IADC website.

2021 - Panel discussion at CEDA Dredging Days 2021

Financing Sustainable Marine and Freshwater Infrastructure: building the bridge between the dredging field and private investors.

At the backdrop of the global investment gap in marine and freshwater infrastructure, a sector in which the dredging sector plays a central role, there is increasing interest in attracting more private investment. On the other hand, the private sector is increasingly ambitious to redirecting investments away from fossil fuels towards sustainable projects. In this talk show, which was held during the CEDA Dredging Days 2021, we will continue building the bridge between the players in the dredging field and the private investment industry, to increase the investability of sustainable projects.

Moderator: Sien Kok, Economist, Deltares.
Panellists including: Paolo Alemanni, B Capital Partners, Switzerland; Torsten Thiele, Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, Germany; Lotte Vandekeybus, DEME, Belgium.

The introduction to the panel discussion was given by Arjan Hijdra, Managing Director of Vital Ports.
