Regional experts meet in Lomé to discuss the creation of a flood warning system

(Togo First) - A two-day workshop focused on flood and drought management was launched this morning in Lomé. 

Experts and stakeholders involved in this area will throughout the meeting discuss results and recommendations provided by a study related to flood and drought. This should ultimately lead to the establishment of a warning system to better manage them, and help assess preparations needed to adapt to climate change in the Volta Basin. 

The Volta stretches from north to south over a distance of 1,850 km, with a basin covering an area of approximately 400,000 km2 and a population of about 20 million people.

It is managed by the Volta basin authority, an African organization set up by the countries sharing the Volta basin, knowingly Benin, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Mali, and Togo.
