Organizing Associations

The International Commission on Continental Erosion

ICCE is one of the Commissions of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS). The field of interest of ICCE may be broadly defined as including the erosion, transport and deposition of sediment and associated nutrients and contaminants and the interaction of these processes with other components of the hydrological cycle and the environment. ICCE recognises the pivotal role that erosion and sediment delivery play in many environmental issues and the inter-disciplinary research required to improve our understanding and management of such issues.
  The Commission seeks to improve current understanding of contemporary and historical erosion, and sedimentation processes and the movement of sediment and associated nutrients and contaminants throughout the landscape and its impact on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, the environment in general and society.
  It also aims to promote the development and application of new empirical methods and modelling frameworks for investigating erosion and sediment transfer at multiple scales from plot, through to field, farm, catchment and national scale delivery. More recently it has focused on bridging the gap between research, management and policy especially through technology transfer to developing countries and by contributing to the development of sediment policy support tools. ICCE sees its role as both promoting scientific advances and applying this knowledge to promote sustainable development and the control and management of environmental problems resulting from sediment and associated nutrient and contaminant transfer.
The Commission actively collaborates with the other IAHS Commissions and other international groups with interests in the field of erosion and sedimentation, including the UNESCO International Sediment Initiative (ISI), the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), the International Geographical Union (IGU), the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD), and the World Association for Sedimentation and Erosion Research (WASER) and the European SedNet initiative. ICCE welcomes interaction with empirical or modelling scientists and practitioners working on sediment either exclusively or in tandem with broader water quality, environmental pollution and management, engineering or ecological studies at any scale.

World Association of Soil and Water Conservation (WASWAC)

WASWAC encourage wise and sustainable use and conservation of soil and water resources through identification and solution of problems by scientific and professional communities and through education of policymakers on dangers of misusing these resources. Specifically: monitor soil and water conservation practices; assess needs and support conservation activity in each nation and worldwide; develop world-wide information exchange among members; enable members to become aware of one another's problems and possible solutions to those problems; encourage research and demonstration projects to assist understanding of how more effective soil and water conservation methods may be put into practice; inform policymakers on the need to protect soil and water resources from destruction so as to ensure survival of mankind.
