Système Locale d’Alerte Précoce pour les Inondations au Sahel
The increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme hydro-meteorological events has prompted Sahelian governments to request support from the international community in implementing early warning systems to help vulnerable riverine communities manage the risk of flooding. In the framework of the ANADIA2 project, a Flood Early Warning System (SLAPIS) has been developed, tested and implemented on the Niger section of the Sirba River, the main tributary of the Niger in its middle basin. Given the interest of the Governments of Niger and Burkina Faso in extending such a successful system, the SLAPIS Sahel project was formulated jointly by stakeholders from both countries with the support of the Italian partners of ANADIA2.
