Indonesia is one of the eleven countries which established the ICID in 1950. But only until around 1970 the country could participate more regularly in the ICID activities. In 1972 the Director General of Water Resources Development of Indonesia, DR. Suyono Sosrodarsono became the Vice President of ICID (1972-1975). Most recently, Dr. Ir. Basuki Hadimoeljono, has elected as Vice President of ICID for the period of 2013-2016 representing Indonesian National Committee of ICID.
Even though the ICID is basically a semi government organization and need to encompass all related institutions, it was not until recently, in March 1994, the current Director General of Water Resources Development took those steps into practice. The organization of the current Indonesian National Committee for ICID was restructured in March 1994. The organization structure of INACID is led by a President of Management Board of which the headquarters is in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia.
