    This project focuses on the management and reduction of flood risk in the informal settlements of Cape Town, and is intended to aid in the creation of a safer living environment for the residents. The team assessed past flooding events, mapped high flood risk areas, generated structural guidelines for residents, created a flood risk index, examined strategies for effective communication, and provided recommendations for several departments of the City about how they can reduce flood risk.
