This paper presents data conducted in Mali in order to develop a flood mapping analysis aiming to provide a cognitive understanding of this phenomenon and to help the geographic prioritization of disaster risk reduction implementation efforts. The study allows to understand the two major types of floods: systematic floods caused by the flooding of the river or agricultural irrigation systems and occasional flooding resulting from an increase in rainfall. Developed map also demonstrates the link between population density, impact and occurrence of floods: the discretization of these three variables produces an indicator to determine the most affected and highly prone to flooding areas.

In French:

Afin d’appuyer l’analyse de l’information liée aux inondations survenues au Mali, les acteurs du programme REACH, en partenariat avec la DGPC, ont réalisé une étude afin de mieux comprendre ce phénomène, dans le but de sélectionner des espaces prioritai res propices à la mise en place d’actions de réduction et de prévention des risques. Cette étude repose sur : Une cartographie des inondations au Mali ; Une cartographie sur l’occurrence et l’ impact des inondations par localité dans les régions de Kayes et de Ségou ; Une cartographie présentant le lien entre densités de population, impact et occurrence des inondations.
