African Regional Conference

ICID does not limit its activities to global arena only; its focus permeates to regional level too.  ICID organizes Regional Conferences on themes of interest to its members in a particular region.  These Regional Conferences, viz. Asian Regional ConferenceEuropean Regional ConferenceAfrican Regional Conference and Pan-American Regional Conference provide a common platform to countries in these regions to address the issues and problems specific to that particular region.  The Regional Conferences are generally organized alongside an IEC but can well be a standalone event.  


To focus on exchange of latest technical know-how and developments in the drainage sector, ICID’s African Regional Working Group (AFRWG) organizes conferences in chosen countries.  So far 4 African Regional Conferences have been held addressing issues related to African issues.
