UNEP-DHI is supporting the National Flood and Drought Task Force of Somalia in researching the applicability of NbS for riverine and flash flood risk mitigation. The project focuses on the communities within the Juba-Shabelle River basin.
UNEP-DHI Centre supports UNEP’s work in highlighting the importance of freshwater ecosystems and their services, and addressing threats to their sustainable functioning.
Our work in this area spans from policy level advice to project implementation, and covers a range of topics including nature based solutions, ecosystem services assessments, strategic indictor use of ecosystems monitoring, and source to sea management approaches.
The Centre’s expertise in satellite data analysis and remote sensing are of increasing importance for guiding countries towards remedial action and halt and reverse ongoing degradation of critical freshwater ecosystems.
