In 2006, the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO established the U.S. National Committee for the International Hydrological Programme to support IHP activities. The functions of the Committee are to provide advice on hydrological issues to the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO in accordance with the Bylaws.

The U.S. National Committee includes members of the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO, U.S. government agencies, and external organizations with expertise in water resources. U.S. National Committee IHP members serve terms of 1-3 years, with the responsibility for chairing the Committee rotated among the Federal agencies. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is currently chairing the Committee.
