Main Activities

The JCUD aims to achieve its objectives by means of various types of activities listed below. Since 1981, the JCUD organizes the triennial International Conference of Urban Drainage (ICUD). Recognised as the most important international events in the field of urban drainage, the ICUDs are held in different parts of the world by groups of active researchers selected and designated by the JCUD after a competitive assessment of submitted proposals. Since 2005, the Poul Harremoës Award for the best urban drainage paper by a young author is presented during each ICUD. The JCUD requests sponsorship from parental organizations (IWA and IAHR) for and promotes specialty conferences organized by its WGs, co-sponsors other conferences and events organized by other groups where urban drainage issues are significant (e.g., the triennial Novatech conferences organised by the GRAIE in Lyon, France; the annual DiffPoll conferences organized by the IWA SG on Diffuse Pollution; and other events selected on the basis of their merit). The JCUD is represented in and actively contributes to the programme and sessions of the IWA Biennial World Water Congress and the IAHR Biennial Congress. The JCUD contributes to the dissemination of knowledge and practice by means of: - ICUD proceedings - IWA and IAHR journals - initiating or sponsoring review and/or position papers prepared by its members and presented at conferences or published in journals, and - initiating or participating in preparation of scientific monographs. The JCUD publishes an annual Newsletter, disseminated electronically using the JCUD e-mail list and also by IWA and IAHR using their own lists. The JCUD and its WGs disseminate information about their activities by means of webpages hosted by (or having hyperlinks on) both IWA and IAHR websites. The JCUD promotes its topics, role and activities in, and contributes to the general policy of its parental organisations.
