ICIMOD and Practical Action Join Hands to Improve Flood Risk Management


ICIMOD and Practical Action formalized collaboration through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to bring together technological and community-based approaches to devise a more reliable mechanism for flood risk management. 

The collaboration will enhance existing community-based flood early warning systems being implemented by Practical Action by integrating them with ICIMOD expertise on satellite rainfall estimation products to increase lead time and improve modelling approaches for downstream hazard analysis.
