  • In the project Drought risk profiles for Africa , Marthe Wens created national drought disaster risk profiles for 18 SSA countries by evaluating drought hazard, exposure, and hydropower and agricultural losses. The project also consisted of a capacity building aspect involving multiple workshops for national disaster managers and technicians all countires.
  • In the project Drought risk profiles for KenyaMarthe Wens created county-specific drought disaster risk profiles for Kenya’s ASAL counties, by evaluating drought hazard, exposure, and drought impacts on children, using AI algorithms and local data.
  • In the project Drought risk profiles for the Volta BasinMarthe Wens and Raed Hamed created a basin-specific drought disaster risk profile on the sub-national scale, by evaluating drought hazard, exposure, and drought impacts on agriculture using AI. The project also consisted of a capacity building aspect involving multiple workshops for technicians in Mali, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo and Benin.
