Upgrading satellite-based flood forecasting with near real-time Jason-2 satellite altimeter data
a framework for a regional flood information system to support disaster prevention and flood management in the HKH region, ICIMOD is working on the HKH- HYCOS project, being implemented in cooperation with WMO and funded
By the mid-monsoon, flash floods of Bhote Koshi had already swept away more than 65 houses and placed 200 more at risk. With rains becoming heavier, further damage was expected.
Monsoon season in South Asia has become a mixed blessing of late as heavy rains are needed for crop production, but also trigger floods and landslides that often negate the gains made through agriculture.
Flood maps illustrating village-level inundation have the potential to support BSDMA in several community-level risk reduction activities. Such information is crucial to the government’s smooth response to Flood management as waters continue to
