FAO SWALIM has finalized the analysis and mapping of the river breakages along the Juba and Shabelle rivers using very high resolution satellite imagery.
Breakages identified in the map have been classified into five different categories; Open, Overflow, Potential Overflows, Potential breakages and Closed with sandbags.
A total of 152 Open points have been identified, 100 on the Shabelle River and 52 on the Juba River which require immediate attention.

- Data Quality
- Methodology used is biased towards Remote Sensing (RS) interpretation with only limited “ground truthing” due to constraints in accessing the areas. Open breakages and overflows might have been omitted or classified as potential in some cases where satellite images were not available or may not have been very clear due to heavy cloud cover and dense vegetation cover.
