Disaster Preparedness through Community Based Flood Early Warning Systems

Communities in mountains areas of the Hindu Kush Himalaya such as Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan are at a great risk of floods and flash floods. We work with communities to install community-based flood early warning systems (CBFEWS), an integrated system of tools and plans which provide warning when rising flood waters are detected. Watch the video to learn more about how this is helping communities evacuate to safer locations during flood events.
