Flood risk assessment and mitigation, Bolivia (2014-09-24)

Collection: CEMS-RRM : CEMS Risk and Recovery Mapping 

Description


Activation date: 2014-09-24
Event type: Other

Activation reason:


The northern territories of Bolivia are regularly affected by massive flooding during the rainy season, which runs from October to April. Departments El Beni and La Paz (northern part) are particularly exposed because of extensive wetlands and the presence of large rivers such as Beni and Mamore. During the past decade, the floods which occurred in 2008 and 2014 appear to be the most significant events. Local authorities express the need to better know the areas prone to floods and vulnerability of populations and infrastructure. Proposals related to protection measures and evacuation plans for the most populated locations (Trinidad, Santa Ana del Yacuma, Rurrenabaque and Guanay) are part of the analysis.
