A 2000 mile reconnaissance with Sergio! Posted March 26, 2010 by Adrian Nance


Adrian needed to check out the flood risks across central and southern Mozambique.  So he, with Sergio Ido as translator, drove 2000 miles (3200 km) over a week to look at the river valleys and to see any flight safety issues; also and where possible they made the links needed for a rapid disaster response.


Here is the Limpopo river; a great shot that highlights its flat flood plain – nearly a million people live on it.  So whilst the Zambezi valley has the people most often affected by floods, the Limpopo can produce the greatest numbers.   Some of these things you can only see from the ground or in a helicopter.
