More on EMSAGG: The European Marine Sand and Gravel Group (EMSAGG) was formed in 1998 to share knowledge on policies and practices relating to mapping, licensing, execution and monitoring of marine sand and gravel with particular regards to environmental protection and wider sustainability imperativeness. This event will provide delegates with an opportunity to evaluate approaches to marine dredging and relevant policy and legislation in UK and Ireland. It will also provide delegates with the opportunity to meet and share experience with EMSAGG members from Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium.
