East Asian Area Dam Conference (EADC)

EADC was formed in 2004 by the Japan Commission on Large Dams (JCOLD), the Chinese National Committee on Large Dams (CHINCOLD), and the Korea National Committee on Large Dams (KNCOLD).
EADC was first held in Xi'an, China in 2004, and has been held every two years in recent years in rotation among Japan, China, and Korea to discuss common issues for the sustainable maintenance and development of dam projects, and to exchange information on dam technology through symposiums and technical tours. It has been held for three rounds so far; the first symposium of the fourth round was held in China (Zhengzhou) in 2018, and the previous 11th EADC was held in Korea (Daejeon) in 2022. The 12th EADC will be held in Nagoya in 2024, Japan as secretariat.
