Language: English

A video report about a partnership between UNESCO and the governments of Japan and Pakistan to implement a project to further improve flood forecasting systems using satellite technology. The Integrated Flood Analysis System (IFAS) and the Runoff-Inundation model (RRI model), have been successfully developed for the upper and lower catchment of the Indus River. More than 39 districts are now being covered with the flood forecasting and early warning system of IFAS, and more than 53 million residents in 32 districts located in the lower Indus river basin are now served with the new flood hazard maps generated by the RRI model
