Executive Summary

In March 2009, flooding, caused by heavy rainfalls in the region, affected six Regions in northern Namibia (Caprivi, Kavango, Oshana, Oshikoto, Ohangwena, and Omusati)1. The 2009 flood is the second such event in two years, following three years of successive low rainfall events. Flood waters surged to near record, overtopping roads and washing out local routes. As a consequence, commercial and industrial activities were disrupted.
