Flood Mitigation Recommendations report

PIN Cambodia

The present paper presents the key findings of the study conducted by PIN under CCCA funds and includes recommendations to Cambodian duty bearers on how to improve flood management in Battambang, supporting the decision-making process.
Specifically, to support the scientific calculation of disaster risk, the mentioned study produced high-resolution topographic data, Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) to predict the spatial distribution of impacts caused by natural hazards flood through a process known as flood modelling. Prek Preah Sdach, Rottanak, Wat Kor, Toul Ta Ek and Chomkar Somraong communes resulted to be the areas of greatest absolute flood hazard among the 9 at-risk communes that were object of the study.
