International Workshop on the theme: Institutional and Organizational Setup of Irrigation and Drainage Management System (WS-IOA)

12 August 2018 at 09.00-12.30 hours

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Scope: The workshop will focus on institutional and organizational aspects of IDM schemes, with new institutional and organizational developments, methods and approaches. The papers should be based on the review of experiences and approaches with Institutional and Organization Aspects (IOA) targeted to managers of irrigation and drainage schemes in the countries or regions that are represented based upon size of land holding, level of agricultural income and technology practices towards sustainable agriculture water management with special focus among others on topics such as:

Sub-topics:

(i) Organizational setup with special scrutiny on I&O aspects versus size of agricultural land holding (<1.00 ha to> 5 ha/land holding); (>5.00 ha to <10 ha/land holding); and (>10 ha/land holding).

(ii) Sustainable O&M of irrigation and drainage schemes in relation with level of irrigation and drainage technology practices, and level of agricultural income versus capacity of the farmer to recover the sustainable O&M budget and resolving the water management problems. 

(iii) Operation and maintenance technology practice in relation with capacity to conduct the demanded O&M Technology versus institutional capacity to conduct integrated working relationship with the related stakeholders. 

(iv) Capacity building and capacity development in relation with organizational and institutional structure versus capacity to sustain the routine implementation of integrated capacity development amongst the relevant stakeholders.


The Workshop is being organized by ICID’s Working Group on Institutional and Organizational Aspects of Irrigation / Drainage System Management (WG-IOA) during the 69th International Executive Council (IEC) Meeting and International Conference from 12-17 August 2018 at Saskatoon, Canada.

Workshop on Historical Water Sustainability (WS-HIST)

12 August 2018, Time: 09:00-12:30 hours

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Scope: At the start of the 21st century, humankind established itself on a non-sustainable course - a course that, unless corrected, will lead to catastrophes and awesome consequences. In this context, the water wisdom of the past, which was achieved over a period of hundreds of years, can be regarded as a unique and irreplaceable gift from our ancestors to our generation facing the great challenge of ensuring sustainable development. In this context, WG-HIST is organizing an international workshop on “Water History in the context of Sustainability”.

Sub-topics:     

(i) Water and Sustainability

(ii) Case studies of Sustainable historical water schemes

(iii) Water Wisdom of the past and lessons learned

 

The Workshop is being organized by ICID’s Working Group on History of Irrigation, Drainage and Flood Control (WG-HIST) during the 69th International Executive Council (IEC) Meeting and International Conference from 12-17 August 2018 at Saskatoon, Canada.

Workshop on Adaptive Flood Management: Recent Great Floods and Lessons Learned (WS-AFM)

12 August 2018, Time: 13:30-17:00 hours

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Scope: The increasing tolls and damages of major floods worldwide have been and would be a major threat to sustainable irrigated agriculture and can jeopardize global food security. In this context, coping with inherent uncertainties of flooding should be addressed by adaptive strategies and worldwide experiences should be discussed and shared.

Sub-topics:  

(i) Uncertainties of flooding: lessons learned

(ii) The effectiveness and efficiencies of flood control structures

(iii) The effectiveness and efficiencies of non-structural approaches

(iv) The economics of flooding

(v) The flooding and agriculture       

  

The Workshop is being organized by ICID’s Working Group on Adaptive Flood Management (WG-AFM) during the 69th International Executive Council (IEC) Meeting and International Conference from 12-17 August 2018 at Saskatoon, Canada.

Workshop on Dry Drainage and Bioreactors or Green Infrastructures (WS-SDRG)

 12 August 2018, Time: 13:30 to 17:00 hours

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Scope: Drainage, at least in Europe, is taxed with all the evils, bringing pollution by nitrates and pesticides. In arid zones, it is thought to be antagonist with water saving programs where a number of irrigation projects are silently approved ignoring the drainage needs.  On the contrary, in the North America, it carries an acceptable image when promoted as drainage Water Management.

However, well-designed, well-managed and well used drainage is a powerful regulator of runoff, can store water in the soil, can ultimately allow regulation of agricultural surface water quality and quantity. Combined with an adapted irrigation design, drainage is an essential tool for managing soil salinity, alkalinity or acidification and, therefore, the sustainability of irrigated agriculture.

The workshop addresses the techniques to design or manage drainage for improving water quality, controlling quantities of water, preserving the soil quality (controlled drainage, constructed wetlands, bioreactors, green infrastructures). Papers related to traditional techniques (Dry drainage for instance) are also welcome.  The subject may be linked to design criteria, law and policies, sociologic approaches for implementation, case studies, any situation in which drainage carries with it the genes of the self-compensation of the agriculture it supports.

Sub-topics:

(i) Controlled drainage

(ii) Bioreactors

(iii) Nature based solution and green infrastructures

(iv) Dry drainage and traditional techniques

 

The Workshop is being organized by ICID’s Working Group on Sustainable Drainage (WG-SDRG) during the 69th International Executive Council (IEC) Meeting and International Conference from 12-17 August 2018 at Saskatoon, Canada.

Chairman: Mr. Bernard Vincent (France)
