Division's Aims

The main objectives of the Division shall be:

  • to promote the science of hydraulics and its application in all relevant fields in the geographic regions;

  • to promote professional competence of individuals in the regions engaged in the development and application of the sciences to the hydrosphere; 

  • to contribute to the solution of regional problems in the field of hydraulics;

  • to provide a forum of exchange of information among researchers and practitioners in the regional community.

The Division's activities mainly include: 

  • organizational development of the Division's areas of endeavour;

  • conduct of regional congresses and conferences;

  • publication of monographs, proceedings of congresses, papers in the Journal of Hydraulic Research;

  • cooperation and co-ordination with other divisions and sections; 

  • provision of a regional clearing house for information related to all aspects of hydraulics and their practical application.


Awards

IAHR Hydro-Environment Asia and Pacific Division Heritage Award

The IAHR Regional Hydro-Environment Heritage Award is conferred by IAHR during one or more of the Asia and Pacific Division Congresses on a local infrastructure of lasting and international importance. It has the purpose of giving international professional recognition to the work of local hydro-environment engineers, and should demonstrably have stood the test of time (and be at least one hundred years old) and be accepted and valued nationally.

  • 2016: The first ever Water Heritage Award was awarded to“Parakrama Samudraya” a reservoir aimed at irrigation and constructed in the 11th century. It has a surface area of 22,600,000 m2 and a catchment area of 75,000,000 m2
