News > MoU Between IADC And UNESCO-IHE


An official Memorandum of Understanding between the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) and UNESCO-IHE, has formalised the cooperation between the organisations and given a broader perspective for the future. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by IADC President Peter de Ridder on behalf of the IADC and Rector/ Prof. A. Szöllösi-Nagy, PhD on behalf of UNESCO-IHE at an official ceremony in Delft, The Netherlands.



IADC and UNESCO-IHE will continue to work together on projects such as short courses on ‘Coastal Engineering and Port Development' (CEPD) and the IADC’s week-long course on dredging and reclamation which has been presented annually at the UNESCO-IHE Delft campus for two decades.

In general, the IADC will offer the more than 14,500 UNESCO-IHE alumni students and alumni a wealth of technical knowledge through its publications. The IADC will also encourage its members to support research projects of UNESCO-IHE students. On the other hand, these UNESCO-IHE alumni from developing countries and countries in transition in Africa, Asia and Latin America can be of importance to the IADC as potential clients and employees.


The next IADC Seminar on Dredging and Reclamation will be held at UNESCO-IHE, from 24 June to 28 June 2013.

Spill Response Baseline Survey


CSIRO from Australia is undertaking a survey tour towards the Australian Bight for a baseline survey looking for oil traces in the water. The surveyors are deploying a CTD and a gravity corer measuring possible traces of oil in the water column. The survey mission also consists of hydrographic mapping techniques, GIS and environmental specialists to make sure the situation before exploration is mapped well in order to know what the environmental consequences of an eventual oil seepage or leak may consist of.
