ICID.UK is the British section of the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID). Its headquarters is in London at the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The British section is very active both nationally and internationally.

Nationally there is considerable interest in irrigated agriculture, drainage and flood control and alleviation.

Internationally there is a traditional interest in irrigation and drainage from many UK professionals and consultancy companies working primarily in the developing world and increasingly in eastern Europe and central Asia.

What we do:

  • Organise a lively Programme of meetings throughout the year, technical visits and other events in London and the provinces
  • Publish News and Views – a magazine for members which circulates nationally and internationally through the ICID membership
  • Participate in International conferences and working groups on issues affecting world food security
  • Support an internationally renown research publication – Irrigation and Drainage – now published through John Wiley and Sons.
