Supporting Organisations - Central Dredging Association (CEDA)
Members of CEDA receive free subscriptions to the magazine, Dredging and Port Construction (DPC). Published monthly, DPC brings information on all aspects of dredging, marine construction and civil engineering as well as technological developments and environmental concerns.
CEDA is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental, professional society. It provides a forum for all those involved in activities related to dredging and who live or work in Europe, Africa or the Middle-East. CEDA encompasses a wide range of disciplines and activities and does not represent the interests of any particular industry sector.

CEDA - Understanding dredging and reclamation
Dredging and the creation of new land is essential to the construction and maintenance of much of the infrastructure on which our economic prosperity depends.
It is an activity about which the wider public is largely unaware, but is a field within which research continues to lead to innovations and the progressive improvement and development of dredging equipment and technology. Increased understanding of dredging processes and advances in the design of equipment for new applications goes hand in hand with increased awareness of the environmental consequences of human activity on almost every front.
Against this background there is a need for a forum for the exchange of quality information on dredging techniques, technology and dredged material management, and for the development of good practice guidance. CEDA, an independent, non-profit, non-governmental, professional society, provides such a forum for all those involved in activities related to dredging and who live or work in Europe, Africa or the Middle-East. CEDA encompasses a wide range of disciplines and activities and does not represent the interests of any particular industry sector.
CEDA is financed by member subscriptions and is governed by an elected Board of Directors. The day-to-day management of the association is delegated to a full time secretariat based in Delft, the Netherlands.
Under the umbrella of WODA, the World Organisation of Dredging Associations, CEDA has two autonomous sister associations which share the aims of CEDA: WEDA - the Western Dredging Association - serving the Americas and EADA - the Eastern Dredging Association - serving the Asian and Pacific region.
