The lower reaches of the Juba and Shabelle Rivers frequently experience devastating floods during the rainy seasons. For effective response that saves live and property, timely data is needed on the current flood situation, areas affected and availability of emargency kits and other materials. SWALIM developed a Flood Risk and Response Information portal, to support the work of the Somalia Interagency Flood Working Group. The information available includes information on:historical floods,river levels, flooded areas, road conditions and estimation of populations under flood, response management showing contact information for cluster leads.
The system’s value and importance relies on information provided by partners. The system is expected to evolve with time to include more strategic information on logistics.Land and Water resources intervention
