SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Le Malawi dispose d’un accès routier aux zones rurales limité et, après une crue éclair, les routes de terre peuvent se transformer en rivières, isolant complètement les communautés touchées. En utilisant des drones, nous survolons la zone sinistrée et pouvons constater clairement quel a été l’impact sur le terrain, puis transmettre cette information aux secours.

SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Malawi has limited road access to rural areas, and after a flash flood earth roads can turn to rivers, completely cutting off affected communities. Using drones, we fly over the affected area and see clearly what the impact has been on the ground, using this information to inform the disaster response.

SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Malawi tiene acceso limitado por carretera a las zonas rurales, y tras una inundación repentina los caminos pueden convertirse en ríos, aislando por completo a las comunidades afectadas. Usando drones, sobrevolamos el área afectada y vemos claramente cuál ha sido el impacto sobre el terreno, usando estos datos para determinar la respuesta de emergencia.

El coordinador de gestión de desastres, Blessings, convocó al equipo de emergencia para discutir la misión de evaluación, las ventajas de los drones, y cómo éstos pueden ayudar a coordinar la respuesta.

SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Lilongwe, Malawi:  “When I set out from Uganda in 2013 to take up my UNV assignment in Malawi as a Joint Procurement Coordinator, my family and I wondered what I could offer.  I did bring 17 years of national and international experience in procurement and supply chain management.  But when I learnt more about the nature of my assignment, relating to the ‘Delivering as One’ (DaO) reforms, I realized the role was the first of its kind.
