    Theme: Flood and drought management – challenges and needs at national level Description: The workshop is organised within the framework of the project, “Capacity Development in Geospatial Technology for Disaster Risk Reduction in the Horn of Africa”, implemented through partnership by ICPAC and UNOSAT. The project started in 2013, to support the establishment of a geospatial decision support system for the management of flood and drought risk in the region. This workshop aims to enhance participants understanding of the different practices in flood and drought management and to familiarise them with ICPAC’s new products (flood hazard map, live web-map and geoportal). It focuses on sharing experiences and lessons learned among ICPAC countries, with regards to flood and drought management.
