A Road Map to ICID Vision 2030

ICID Office Bearers/ Consultative Group (CG) members released a publication titled ‘A Road Map to ICID Vision 2030: A Water Secure World Free of Poverty and Hunger’ during the Plenary Session of the 68th IEC Meeting on 10 October 2017 in Mexico City.


RIO+20 provided the desired push in the political process by articulating ‘The Future We Want’ that lead to the globally acceptable SDGs adopted by the UNs General Assembly in September 2015. For providing support to National Committees (NCs) and irrigation professionals in fulfilling these expectations, ICID started a systematic review of its objectives, goals and activities and established a Consultative Group (CG) in 2014.


The Group undertook intensive discussions and sought inputs through questionnaires from NCs and Working Group experts formulated the strategy and deliberated in the meetings of various work bodies. The outcomes of these efforts are covered into a Road Map to Vision 2030.. [More...]
