This map illustrates the satellite-detected surface waters extent and evolution over Oponono Lake; a large wetland fed by the Culevai Oshana, in Oshana region, Namibia, as observed from the Sentinel-1 images acquired on 02 and 14 March 2017. An increase of surface water extent was detected in the 14 March 2017 image, particularly in the upstream part of the lake: ~4,130 ha of surface water were observed the 02 March 2017 within the lake area and reached ~10,820 ha the 14 March 2017 corresponding to an evolution of about 160%.
Despite an increase in rainfall, long-term moisture deficits remain in Madagascar
Africa Weather Hazards
Below-average and erratic rainfall since December has resulted in strong moisture deficits and low soil moisture across parts of northeastern Mozambique.
Despite a robust increase in rainfall following the passage of Tropical Cyclone Enawo during early March, considerable long-term moisture deficits remain due to well below-average rainfall earlier in the season throughout the northern Madagascar.
At first glance, $36 may not seem much, but for survivors of a devastating cyclone in Madagascar, that amount provides the ability for a family to meet their immediate basic needs for six weeks.

In 2013, super typhoon Haiyan wreaked havoc on Eastern Samar and Bantayan Island and triggered a huge humanitarian response. Now the challenge is to support sustainable development. Having a toilet is a ‘damgo’ (a dream), not a necessity for poor families in the Philippines. If you didn’t think having a clean toilet at home was important before the disaster, why would it be important afterwards?

Le réseau routier à Madagascar est très limité. il pose généralement de nombreuses contraintes pour le transport de personnes et de marchandises dans certaines régions notamment celles affectées par le cyclone ENAWO. L'accès aux zones frappées par le cyclone reste difficile en raison des routes bloquées - par des arbres ou la montée des eaux - et des infrastructures endommagées, y compris les ponts et ferries, ce qui limite la capacité des organisations humanitaires à répondre aux besoins des populations affectées.
