Emirates Shipping Association at IADC Panel Discussion


Tuesday, 28th February By Jennifer Patricio

Representatives of Emirates Shipping Association attended the IADC conference ‘Financing Sustainable Marine and Freshwater Infrastructure’, an event for professionals in the fast changing world of finance, dredging or related sectors. The conference contributed to broadening knowledge of sustainable financing related to dredging projects.

In a panel discussion, all participants agreed on the importance of sustainable projects, but there was consensus around the difficulties of executing projects. The question raised: “How then can parties break the deadlock in the funding of sustainable projects?”

During the afternoon session, the members were invited to identify potential solutions, and we were inspired by the discussions and the number of ideas submitted. The day’s discussion resulted in a prioritised list of activities that could eventually lead to breaking down these obstacles.

If you’d like to learn more about the ideas that came from this session, the team from IADC has made them available here.
