About JCUD

  • Joint Committee on Urban Drainage

    The IWA/IAHR Joint Committee on Urban Drainage (JCUD) is operated jointly by the International Water Association (IWA) and the International Association on Hydraulic Engineering and Research (IAHR). This joint oversight has been established to emphasize and promote effective interactions between experts on hydraulic aspects (main focus of IAHR) and on water quality aspects (main focus of IWA); such aspects are intrinsically inter-related in the field of urban drainage.

Composition and Working Groups

The JCUD comprises a management committee with up to 12 members, elected for a 3-year term (with the possibility of serving a second 3-year term, and a further extension in the case of the chairman elected during the second term of service). The management committee members’ specialties should reflect the various topics addressed by the JCUD and, as much as possible, the members should represent active research communities in the different regions of the world. The JCUD operates and coordinates a number of Working Groups, each having large autonomy in defining its operational rules of work. More details on the JCUD composition and working groups are given in the ‘JCUD Statutes’ document.

The Working Groups that the JCUD supports and coordinates can be found here.
