ICID YOUNG PROFESSIONAL'S e-FORUM (IYPeF)
In addition to learning from past experiences, includingmistakes, what definitely is required under the increasing complexities of supply, demand and uncertainties, is a breed of professionals that approach the irrigation and drainage issueswith a more open mindset to accept the multi-dimensional aspects of the sector and are willing to undertake their activities in an inter-disciplinary context. With these long-term objectives in view, ICID had established a separate Working Group on Young Professionals Forum (WG-YPF) in 1993, which completed its mandated in 2015.
At the 65th International Executive Council (IEC) held at Gwangju, Korea, in September 2014, the Council approved establishing an ICID Young Professional’s e-Forum (IYPeF) with open membership. In order to throw open ICID platform to all the Young Professionals interested in Agriculture Water Management issues, the e-Forum established as a new LinkedIn Group (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/6990321).
IYPeF will not only acts as virtual meeting place but also a platform that would serve as a stepping stone into annual events of ICID that would provide opportunities to the budding professionals for interaction with the best professionals in irrigation and drainage sector, present papers, avail latest information and join technical working groups.
IYPeF held its first physical meeting during the 67th IEC, Chiang Mail, Thailand. Being the first meeting, Secretary General Avinash C Tyagi facilitated the meeting, with Ms Kathleen Heuvel as Coordinator of IYPeF.
