Pakistan Flood 2010

Starting in July 2010, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan was hit by massive flooding due to monsoon rains. Flood waters have continued to move south through Punjab and Sindh provinces, largely down the Indus River valley. Officials described the flooding in northwestern Pakistan as the worst since 1929. ICIMOD has taken up rapid response mapping for the flood affected areas in three provinces with the support from Sentinel-Asia partners and the request received from UN Space-Aid to support SUPARCO, Pakistan. Wide range of flood products are being generated on a daily basis to support space-agency and other relevant teams involved in disaster management.
