This 127 page Report covers aspects of the whole life cycle of navigation infrastructure from design to construction to operations/maintenance and end-of-life considerations. It describes how carbon can be managed, influenced and reported for a navigation infrastructure project or a port with both land-side and water-side considerations.

In addition, it describes unique opportunities to reduce and offset emissions from waterways navigation infrastructure development, including dredging and the beneficial use of dredged sediments, which need to be considered in any carbon management framework for this sector.
