Zambia national contingency plan for floods

This contingency plan covers the 2009-2010 rainy season with the likely scenario of having floods as a hazard. This scenario is based on the 2009-2010 rainfall forecast for the country obtained from the Zambia Meteorological Department (ZMD). It anticipates that a total population of 713,193 people (118,866 households) residing in 43 districts are likely be affected by floods. The activities to be carried out before and during the floods will receive priority over those to be conducted after the floods when resource mobilisation is conducted.
