ICE set to publish principles of working

ICE news

THE ICE presidential commission charged with developing a set of principles for working on projects in developing countries will soon mail out its draft proposals to other institutions across the world.

The Engineering Without Frontiers commission hopes engineering bodies will sign up to the code of practice, which aims to set standards for development engineering.

The commission has four working groups focusing on the engagement of young people, leadership, education and training, procurement and contract issues and communication and engagement of local communities.

It is hoped there will be an opportunity during the ICE presidential visit to Kenya, Tanzania and Egypt next month to ask sister civil engineering bodies to sign up to the principles.

These will also be sent to the engineering bodies of all the G8 countries - the US, France, Canada, Japan, Germany, Italy and Russia, as well as the UK, prior to the G8 summit at Gleneagles, Scotland in July.

The Department for International Development, United Nations, World Bank and International Monetary Fund will also be sent copies of the draft principles.
