ICID’s main activity is to promote three core areas viz, irrigation, drainage and flood management by addressing their engineering, agronomic, environmental, social, financial and institutional aspects. The Permanent Committee for Technical Activities (PCTA) provides the platform for the various technical working groups and task forces categorized under four ‘Strategy Themes’ – Basin, Schemes, On-Farm, and Knowledge, to interact with each other to discuss their outcomes to ensure synergetic outputs. All the four themes are headed by Vice Presidents as theme leaders responsible for presenting their report during the International Executive Council meeting on rotation. The Committee is responsible for the selection of Questions/Themes for Congresses, World Irrigation Forums, Regional Conferences, Special Sessions, Symposia, etc., and for making appropriate recommendations for action thereon.
The Strategy Themes – Basin, Schemes, On-Farm, and Knowledge, takes the final call for the selection of Questions/Themes for Congresses, World Irrigation Forums, Regional Conferences, Special Sessions, Symposia, etc.
