Low lying areas along the Niger River which marks Benin's North-Western border, have been severely affected by recent flooding. The Logistics Cluster team conducted a transport assessment collecting information on affected areas.
Existing maps are not sufficient guides, as villages are located or named incorrectly and information on roads and tracks is patchy.
The assessment was conducted in villages throughout Malanville. Some of the areas were completely cut off during the floods and others were partially inaccessible.
Each week the Global Logistics Cluster Support Cell (GLCSC) provides an operational update of the activities of Logistics Clusters/Sectors in the field, together with the details of the latest publications on the Logistics Cluster website. The GLCSC is housed in the Logistics Division of the UN World Food Programme, the Global Logistics Cluster Lead.

Les inondations constituent un risque récurrent de catastrophe naturelle au Bénin, particulièrement dans la partie méridionale du pays. Les carences en termes d'aménagement du territoire et de gestion des risques ont davantage amplifié l'impact des conséquences extrêmes liées au changement climatique. Accusant une intensité exceptionnelle en 2010, les récentes pluies ont provoqué des crues hors-normes dans 55 des 77 communes que compte le pays.
