WORKING GROUP ON VALUE ENGINEERING (WG-VE)
Back

Large and medium scale irrigation systems worldwide account for about 60 percent of the irrigated areas but are the one that present the most severe gap between expected and actual performance. Efforts to improve the performance of these systems have been mixed because of a number of misconceptions of the problems. ICID has formed a Task Force on Application of Value Engineering in Irrigation and Drainage Projects (TF-VE) to promote the application of Value Methodology (Value Engineering, Value Analysis, Value Planning, Value Management and Value Engineering Change Proposal (VECP)) in irrigation, drainage and flood management projects to increase benefits, reduce cost and ensure sustainable irrigated agriculture.


 

Mandate: The objective of the Working Group (WG) would be to promote the application of Value Methodology (Value Engineering, Value Analysis, Value Planning, Value Management and Value Engineering Change Proposal (VECP)) in irrigation, drainage and flood management projects to increase benefits, reduce cost and ensure sustainable irrigated agriculture.
Terms of Reference (ToR) 1. Develop a Website on application of Value Engineering in Irrigation and Drainage projects 2. Produce a Documentary on application of Value Engineering in Irrigation and Drainage projects 3. Organize workshops and seminars on application of Value Engineering in Irrigation and Drainage projects 4. Prepare a Manual on application of Value Engineering in Irrigation and Drainage projects
