Objectives

The JCUD aims to foster fundamental and applied research on urban drainage, taking into account meteorological, hydrological, hydraulic, water quality and socio-economic aspects, and promote innovative approaches to urban drainage worldwide. Among its specific interests are urban water quality, sewer sediments, source control, stormwater management, combined sewer overflows, real time control of urban drainage systems, drainage in cold and alpine climates, and data and models for urban water. The JCUD operates a number of Working Groups and holds triennial international conferences and many specialty international conferences. Frequent and productive interactions among JCUD WGs should be constantly promoted. The JCUD strives to maintain its long-standing broad international recognition as a prominent contributor to the advancement of the scientific knowledge in the field of urban drainage. It considers its activities in the wider context of urban water systems, with the ambition of developing and promoting a sustainable and integrated urban water management. This implies that the JCUD and its Working Groups are proactive in establishing links and collaboration with specialist groups within IWA, IAHR and outside of these associations, in order to promote its field, capabilities and contributions in such an expanded domain.
