Commissions & Working Groups

Four Technical Commissions are covering the different areas of waterborne transport infrastructure. They are supervising the work carried out by our experts in the respective Working Groups on subjects of interest. The reports drafted by these Working Groups are the core business of our Association.  

Besides a Finance Commission and a Promotion Commission, two other non-technical Commissions have been set up to support Young Professionals and Countries in Transition.
