Fighting floods together: we need you!

The Netherlands Red Cross (NLRC) is calling out for those most at risk from floods in the peri urban areas of Mozambique. Private sector actors large and small, knowledge institutes and (local) governmental organisations are invited to join the LIVING WITH FLOODS challenge. Together with DCHI, NLRC  believes a significant impact can be created for the vulnerable communities in Mozambique, but only if we partner with you and take action together.

If no action is taken, flood disasters will continue to harm many vulnerable people in Mozambique.

Registration and application for this international call for entries is now open to help peri-urban communities in Mozambique to anticipate and act on rising flood risks. NLRC and DCHI are calling for businesses of all sizes, knowledge institutes and (local) government organisations to join forces on this challenge following the open innovation principles. To design and deploy (possible scalable) solutions with our local partners in the Idai-affected area.
