The World Organization of Dredging Associations (WODA) is an independent, non-profit, professional organization. It is composed of three separate, autonomous sister dredging associations, with separate corporate structures:
- WEDA - Western Dredging Association serving the Americas
- CEDA - Central Dredging Association serving Europe, Africa and the Middle-East
- EADA - Eastern Dredging Association serving the Asian and Pacific region
WODA has no individual members.
The three associations convene the triennial World Dredging Congress (WODCON), hosted in turn by each region.
The interest of the three sister associations (EADA, CEDA and WEDA) includes all aspects of dredging and the environment, and encompasses a whole range of disciplines and activities. CEDA, EADA and WEDA do not represent the views of any single dredging entity.
WODA's objective is to achieve sustainable dredging through implementation of these Principles of Sustainable Dredging.
