Flood mapping and vulnerability & capacities assessment in the frame of the Volta Flood and Drought Management program (OMM)

This project, carried out under the framework agreement among WMO, GWP and K&I related to the Associated Program on Flood Management, consists of a flood mapping (the worst one experienced by the population and the most frequent ones) in 60 sites in Benin, Burkina Faso , Ivory Coast, Ghana, Mali and Togo, carried out on the basis of  information available locally in the sites (also by enhancing historical memory). It also includes an assessment of local vulnerabilities and capacities. In a later stage, community capacity-building actions will be carried out focused on a better stakeholders engagement in the drought and flood management.
