Within the Programme “Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries and Communities ”, UNDRR and CIMA Research Foundation organized a five-day Study Tour in Europe – namely Italy and Brussels - for members of
This Angola country risk profile provides a comprehensive view of hazard, risk and uncertainties for floods and droughts in a changing climate, with projections for the period 2050-2100. The risk profile considers a large number of possible scenarios
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction has engaged CIMA Research Foundation to generate risk profiles on flood and drought in 16 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The countries that will be involved in the risk assessment are: Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Rwanda, Swaziland, Tanzania, Ivory Coast, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Gambia, Gabon, Cameroon, Ghana, Sao Tome and Principe, and Kenya.
