The Flood & Drought Portal:

13 September 2018

“The portal doesn’t just provide data and information, it provides tools that allow you to integrate the information into your planning. There are other portals that provide climate data, but there aren’t any systems that provide a package allowing you to access information and then use it in your planning process.” Katherine Cross, IWA

The initiative led by UN Environment is working together with the International Water Association and DHI to enable water authorities to manage and overcome water-related risks by being able to predict and plan for flood and drought impacts. To make the information accessible to stakeholders, DHI GRAS has aggregated data streams from more than 20 different online sources of remote sensing and climate data. We compute statistics and complex indices based on latest science for enhanced assessment of flood or drought severity, available on country or river basin scale.
