K4D Bolstering International Recognition of Flooding Challenges in Nigeria
MetadataShow full item record
The issue of flooding in Nigerian cities is relatively poorly documented, despite the significant economic damage and the loss of life it results in each year. The lack of a consistent set of data for informing policy and programming is a well-recognised challenge. Recognising the value of access to a reliable evidence base, colleagues at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) Nigeria office collaborated with the K4D team in drafting a desk review that outlined a deeper understanding of the impact, risk factors and associated management and mitigation factors to urban flooding in Nigeria. Evidence indicates that the report has proved a successful instrument in both providing a foundation for evidence-based action, as well as serving as a tool in which to engage and inspire a wide range of stakeholders.
