Dredging and Reclamation Course

Capacity Building is a key activity for the Netherlands in partnership with Myanmar. The Water Agency organised and coordinated a very interesting program for all key stakeholders incl. High-Level Dinner and TV show format to capture all lessons learned. The Dredging and Reclamation course was held from 15 January to 19 January 2018 at the Inya Lake Hotel, Yangon and organized by The Water Agency in partnership with Dutch dredging contractors Boskalis, Van Oord and Dutch Embassy in Myanmar.

The course is developed for professionals in dredging-related industries, aiming to encourage people to enter the field of dredging, and to improve knowledge about dredging throughout the world. Lecturers of the course were Marcel van den Heuvel, Robert Dijkema from Van Oord and Pieter den Ridder from Boskalis.

All 33 Burmese participants enjoyed doing workshops and enjoyed competing with their teams to win the tender contract during the final simulation workshop. During the tender discussions, the participant teams were thrilled and excited to share their visions from their respective field of studies
