Internship Topic: Dynamic flood risk forecasting in Ba province in the Republic of the Fiji Islands
At the completion of my DPMM Professional Masters coursework, I was attached with the Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia (RIMES) at their regional office at AIT for my required internship.
I considered myself fortunate for I got to do a hands-on experience on multi-hazard early warning systems that have been applied and managed in Africa and Asia. As part of my project, I worked on dynamic flood risk forecasting in Ba province in the Republic of the Fiji Islands. It was a great learning experience as I got to realize the how flood risk forecasting using past rainfall data can prevent disastrous flood impacts and minimize losses.
