ICID Congress will be held 08 to 14 Oct 2017 in Mexico City, Mexico.
ICID Congress is the leading event in the field of Irrigation and Drainage. The International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID) established in 1950 is the leading scientific, technical and not-for-profit Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). ICID, through its network of professionals spread across more than a hundred countries, has facilitated sharing of experiences and transfer of water management technology for over half-a-century. The mission of ICID is to stimulate and promote the development and application of the arts, sciences and techniques of engineering, agriculture, economics, acological and social sciences in managing water and land resources for irrigation, drainage, flood management, for archieving sustainable agriculture water management. This is a great opportunity for you to not only participate in the Congress and IEC meetings, but also to visit and learn from the many models of irrigation and drainage success stories in Mexico. ICID Congress is an event and I like events...
Modernizing Irrigation and Drainage for a New Green Revolution.
The theme of the Congress will be “Modernizing Irrigation and Drainage for a new Green Revolution”. This theme is undoubtedly the most urgent agenda for the irrigation community that needs to be addressed in the 21st century. An ever-growing population, the fast degradation of natural resources, and the potential impacts of climate change challenge us to find integrated solutions to global problems. The green revolution began in Mexico in the 1940s and many countries, after using green revolution technologies, have become self-sufficient.
