POSTPONED –   Workshop #3: Ocean Planning: How Will it Affect the Maritime Industry?

Postponed to February 12, 2014

Ocean Planning is vitally important to protecting the health of our oceans and the viability of industries that depend on ocean resources. It can also mean increased restrictions and regulations, with potential impacts on maritime trade and the wider economy. This workshop will examine the planning currently taking place, and develop awareness of possible impacts to maritime trade, what we need to do to protect the maritime industry, and how the maritime industry can contribute to the ocean planning process.

November 15, 2013     Workshop #4: Dredging and Wetlands Restoration: Who Pays for Beneficial Reuse?

To promote greater trade opportunities and more quality jobs, dredging is critical to the ability to move goods into and out of our ports. There are beneficial ways to reuse dredged material, such as the South Bay Salt Ponds Restoration Project. In order to best benefit the economy and the environment, who should pay for the placement of this beneficially reused material?
