Final Report: Mozambique Integrated Information Network for Decision .
Project Report | September 30, 2005
The four-year Mozambique Integrated Information Network for Decision Making (MIND) project strengthened Mozambique’s ability to prevent human losses and economic disruptions from natural hazards.
Through upgrades in data gathering, knowledge creation, and information sharing, MIND strengthened early warning systems for floods and cyclones and helped improve disaster management and contingency planning. In the process, MIND fostered networking and built Mozambican capacity to unprecedented levels. MIND combined a spectrum of tools — from high-tech, satellite-derived rainfall estimations to multicolored cyclone warning flags, from Internet-based radio broadcasts to wind-up radios — to ensure that appropriate information reached decision makers at all levels, and supported and expanded early warning and response networks at the local level.
