For most communities living in areas that normally experience low to moderate level flooding, relocation is generally not an option. Such communities need to be supported to 'live with floods'. UN-HABITAT is supporting a disaster risk reduction intervention in the area of T/A Makhwira in Chikhwawa District.

Objective:

To reduce vulnerability to floods for communities living in low lands prone to low and moderate level flooding by reinforcing local capacities through innovative small-scale mitigation interventions for floods to support the alternative strategy of Living with Floods rather than relocation.
