Asian 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 Conference, European Regional Conference, African 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.  

The 8th Asian Regional Conference (ARC) was held from 02-04 May 2018 at Kathmandu, Nepal on the theme “Irrigation in Support of an Evergreen Revolution”. The conference was hosted by the Nepal National Committee of ICID (NENCID) jointly with the Department of Irrigation (DoI), Government of Nepal and other partners. More than 700 participants had attended the meeting.
