Supporting a strategic plan for the National Center for Water Modelling in Colombia
Colombia was hit by torrential flooding in late 2010 and at the beginning of 2011. Hundreds of people perished and the country’s physical infrastructure suffered extensive damage. Substantial portions of Colombia have been plagued for years by heavy and persistent rainfall, caused by natural phenomena such as El Niño and La Niña. The effects of climate change, the increase in rainfall and flood frequency, and drought are all factors having a negative impact on Colombia’s economy and infrastructure.
