Flood Foresight - near real-time flood forecasting and early warning solutions
To avoid or significantly reduce the impact of disasters, our strategic flood forecasting framework, Flood Foresight, can provide users with a broad-scale flood forecasting and early warning solution. It allows asset owners, humanitarians and insurers to anticipate actions that can be taken to reduce the impacts of flooding.
- Clients: Insurance companies, infrastructure owners/developers, national governments and NGO's
- Location: Global
The impacts of disasters, such as deaths, economic hardship, and damage to homes and livelihoods, can be avoided or significantly reduced through pre-event preparedness actions, including flood forecasting and warning, and preparing response mechanisms.
To facilitate these actions, we developed a strategic flood forecasting framework, Flood Foresight, that is efficient, transparent, customizable and can be deployed globally.
Flood Foresight provides near real-time and forecast rainfall and flood data, based on best available river telemetry and modelling approaches, combined with state of the art high-resolution flood maps. It provides reliable sources of information and predictive analytics to understand potential flood impacts before, during and after flood events.
This information can aid pre-emptive decision making including emergency management or humanitarian response, potential road or rail infrastructure restrictions or closures, and risk to insured assets and potential loss information.
We already have the components to make use of the system in any country, meaning it can be deployed rapidly anywhere in the world to meet a range of user requirements. This provides a framework for flood forecasting and early warning, on which more local data sources can be integrated over time.
