Description:

Northern Regions. Flood Risk Management Plan.

Summary / Notes:

Flooding in Namibia has become a common phenomenon. Floods have had significant impacts in the affected areas including displacement of the population, the loss of life and livestock, destruction of homes and businesses, crops and the social infrastructure and generally impacting severely on the livelihoods of the affected populations. The present study has been prepared to identify and respond to emerging humanitarian needs in the five most affected regions, with deeper approaches in selected towns and settlement areas. The causes of the flood disasters were the above normal rainfall received in the northern central and eastern regions of Namibia, southern Angola and Zambia and a series of risk conditions such as uncontrolled urban development and settlements on river beds and flood prone areas.
