MIFMASS

GMES & Africa - Flood Event Database

Data Entry, Field Description/Definition
The task of this WP2 of the MIFMASS Project was to develop a regional flood database. This database would keep records of flood occurrences in the target countries. The records could range from the geographical location, the type of disaster (e.g., riverine or flash flood), casualties and the damage in physical and economic terms. CURAT was responsible for this task. The aim of this activity was to create a system that integrates or pulls together the respective national databases into a regional database. It has to be be an online system that mirrors the national databases and permit regional bodies, basin authorities and other cross-border agencies to have regional overviews of flood events over the years and proffer regional scale solutions. The result of this activity is a fully functional updatable online system that provides past and present information on flood events in the target countries. The platform has been developped, and is accessible at http://gp.gmes-mifmass.net
