ANCOLD’s Mission

As the industry body, we support our members, disseminate knowledge, develop capability and provide guidance in achieving excellence for all aspects of dam engineering and management. We recognise that it is the skills of the people involved in these activities, their sharing of knowledge and collaboration that will sustain this mission.
