IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Specific Technical Committees

The Technical Divisions provide the operational framework for the sixteen Committees, which cater to the scientific and engineering needs of its members.

The Committees are composed of IAHR members who are professionally active in one or more fields of the Committee’s specialisation, and the Committees regularly organise conferences and symposia in their own specific fields; provide a base for collaboration in working groups on specific research themes and development monographs, etc.
