Flood Management Information System Centre

FMIS Components and Sub-components

Institutional strengthening in flood management
  1. Capacity building
    1. Infrastructure upgrading (computing and communication, office infrastructure)
      1. Upgrading Flood Control Cell (FCC) of UPID into the modern FMIS Centre
      2. Flood offices in Rapti basin (CE office, SE offices, EE offices, upto concerned JE offices) and in Lucknow
    2. Skill upgrading
      1. Sharing global best practices in flood management
      2. Professional Development and training
    3. Recruit contract specialist staff (Remote sensing/GIS, Web site development and maintenance, Database management, System Manager, IT, Instrumentation, Community participation)
    4. Position WRD staff with specialist skills (Hydrologists, Hydrologic/ hydraulic/ hydrodynamic modelers, Embankment management, Flood management), or recruit from market
  2. Develop Integrated Flood management strategy and plan for optimal management interventions and investment strategy
Institutional strengthening in flood management
Development of FMIS
  1. Knowledge Base- current and historic field data and satellite imagery, thematic maps, surveys (river, embankment, topographical), Real Time –Data Acquisition System (RT-DAS), best global practices
  2. Modeling/Analysis tools
    1. Flood forecast and inundation
    2. River morphological changes
    3. Embankment breach
    4. Risk assessment (loss-of-life, economic impact, and population at risk)
    5. Decision Support Systems (DSSs) for real-time flood management
  3. Embankment Safety Programme

      a ) Embankment Asset Management System (EAMS), including Embankment Inspection System (EIS) and geophysical and geotechnical investigation

      b) Policies, Protocols and programmes for embankment safety and integrity, covering site investigation, design, construction, operation and maintenance, safety certification, and flood preparedness

      c) Retro‐fitting with In‐situ sensors to monitor horizontal and vertical displacement,pore pressure, etc.

  4. Develop Integrated Flood management strategy and plan for optimal management interventions and investment strategy
Community based risk management
  1. Community participation in embankment surveillance and protection
  2. Community alerts and emergency flood management
  3. Public awareness and outreach
  1. Customized analysis outputs (eg. planning new/strengthening existing flood protection works, flood proofing, emergency flood management, recovery and reconstruction, etc)
