Developed a contingency plan outlining mitigation plans for both floods and drought, which was implemented during the 2016/17 drought ; information was used to advise government and humanitarian partners on priority response activities. Trained six enumerators and carried out a water sources survey covering 530 water points in Bay and Bakool Regions, the data from which was used to update SWALIM’s water sources live map.
