In addition to learning from past experiences, includingmistakes, what definitely is required under the increasing complexities of supply, demand and uncertainties, is a breed of professionals that approach the irrigation and drainage issueswith a more open mindset to accept the multi-dimensional aspects of the sector and are willing to undertake their activities in an inter-disciplinary context. With these long-term objectives in view, ICID had established a separate Working Group on Young Professionals Forum (WG-YPF) in 1993, which completed its mandated in 2015.


At the 65th International Executive Council (IEC) held at Gwangju, Korea, in September 2014, the Council approved establishing an ICID Young Professional’s e-Forum (IYPeF) with open membership. In order to throw open ICID platform to all the Young Professionals interested in agriculture water management issues, the e-Forum established as a new LinkedIn Group (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/6990321).
