On July, 1, IRPI CNR started a new project in collaboration with the the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) aimed at the development of an operational flood forecasting system in India (Bihar) for index-based flood insurance implementation. The project aims to integrate hi-tech modelling and satellite imagery with other data to predetermine flood thresholds, which could lead to effective compensation payout schemes for low-income, flood-prone communities.
