Click to see full picture - Global Flood Partnership Components

The Global Flood Partnership is composed of the following five main components (see full concept paper for more details):

Global Flood Toolbox: A toolbox of open data, services and models for supporting flood risk mapping and assessment (now and under changing climate), early warning and impact analysis, complements by training programs

Global Flood Observatory: Provides operational global flood forecasting and monitoring services, including a group of experts providing up to 30 day flood forecasts and impact analysis for major floods

Global Historical Flood Record: Develops and maintains a global flood hazard and loss record according to international standards

Global Flood Training and Capacity Building Program: Provides training modules for flood monitoring capacity building and maintenance in developing countries and international organizations, which can be integrated in existing training programs of major development banks and agencies

Global Flood User Forum: holds regular meetings between all partners in focused workshops to ensure that user needs are driving innovation and development.
