Big Data for Resilience – Flooding in Dar es Salaam

Project - Big Data

Dar es Salaam suffers from biannual flooding caused by various factors including climate change and rapid unplanned urban growth.

Receiving a ESRC-NERC-DFID grant for “Big Data for Flood Resilience in East Africa”, this project investigates how digital footprint data can predict, identify and inform decisions during flood and other natural hazard events.

The research informed DFID’s Big Data for Climate Change and Disaster Resilience Report.
