  • We have provided capacity-building in IFM throughout the world. Since 2007, we have imparted 40 workshops in 27 countries, training more than 1000 participants
  • We disseminate information in 6 international conferences/meetings each year
  • We have developed 24 tools on specific elements of IFM that provide guidance
  • We have established a network of 26 partners (ranging from country meteorological services, to universities and private sector) around the world with expertise in different fields related to water and flood management
  • We have implemented/are implementing pilot projects on IFM in 18 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South & Central America. Among the main topics are community-based flood management, transboundary flood management, and
