The 2010 – 2011 floods in Namibia caused widespread damages over seven regions in the country. Some 200 000 people were displaced with a death toll of over 90 being recorded. The President of the Republic declared a state of emergency at the end of March 2011, and various national and international partners responded in a varied manner to the call for assistance and collaboration in addressing flood management issues. UNESCO also responded to the call by sending a team of hydrologists on an exploratory mission to determine areas in which UNESCO can further collaborate with Namibia in addressing flood management. The team visited Namibia in July 2011, and presented its initial findings to the Prime Minister on 29 July 2011.
