Flood-warning system in Mozambique: completion of the Búzi project

Source(s):  Munich Re Foundation

In recent decades, there has been a significant increase in flood disasters in many parts of the world, Mozambique being no exception. It suffered its worst floods in recent history in 2000, and was struck again in 2007. Efficient warning systems are therefore a fundamental part of any viable prevention strategy.
This document explains the working of the Munich Re Foundation’s Mozambique flood-warning system project, which has allowed to set up a simple but effective early warning system along the River Búzi since 2005. It also discusses major successes and lessons learnt.
