This map illustrates the extent of surface waters (cumulative) in Bamingui-Bangoran and Vakaga, Central African Republic and Moyen-Chari and Salamat, Chad as detected by VIIRS-NOAA satellite between the 10th & the 16th of September 2020. Within the analyzed area of about 200,000 km2, a total of about 9,000 km2 of lands appear to be flooded. Based on Worldpop population data and the detected surface waters, 4,000 people in Bamingui-Bangoran and Vakaga prefectures of Central African Republic and about 100,000 people in Moyen-Chari and Salamat regions of Chad are potentially exposed or living close to flooded areas.
This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR -UNOSAT.
