PNN 39297
Work Detail The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) is working with the government of Zambia on post-flood recovery strategy development in the wake of floods affecting more than 20,000 people. Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms affected central-southern Zambia starting 11 January causing severe floods and overflowing rivers leading to casualties and damage. Zambias Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit has reported the ongoing floods in the Southern and Central Provinces as "catastrophic." A rising number of communities are at risk of contaminated flood waters, submerge sanitation, collapsed infrastructure and damaged homes. There is also the risk of imminent waterborne diseases that stem from such extreme flooding. Zimbabwe National Water Authority reported that the Zhovhe Dam on the Mzingwane Rivet north of Beitbridge, started spilling over on 17 February. Earlier this year, Zambias Water Resources Management Authority (WARMA) coordinated development agencies for disaster response in the severely impacted districts of Luapula, Kapompo, Lukulu, Senange, Kitwe, Mambwe and Solwezi. In this context, IWMI has come forward with the offer to support post-flood recovery strategy development, as well as the strengthening of digital climate agro-advisory services.
