IFAS & RRI PRODUCTS

 

 

 

IFAS (Integrated Flood Analysis System) is a product of ICHARM (International Centre for Water Hazard and Risk Management) Japan and used internationally for flood analysis. This product has been customized over Indus river under the project “Strategic Strengthening of Flood Warning and Management Capacity of Pakistan” (2012-2014) and transformed into rainfall runoff forecasting model namely Indus-IFAS. The project was undertaken by UNESCO with the help of Government of Japan in collaboration with the Pakistan Met. Department. This model has the capability of forecasting a flood wave. Additional benefit of this model is that it covers the upstream Tarbela right from Skardu and the Kabul river catchment (which the FEWS lacks in the present shape) down to Kotri. The model was handed over to FFD/PMD in March 2014 and presently running on trial basis during this flood season for its calibration and validation. Another component of this model is Rainfall Runoff Inundation (RRI). The most useful tool to manage the flood water.  This component also provided by ICHARM Japan under this project.
