The ultimate goal of OPIDIN is to inform the people in the Inner Niger Delta timely and frequently about the expected flooding of the delta. This page explains the different ways that are used to achieve this objective.

The results of OPIDIN are communicated in several ways:

  • The present website gives a full access to all the information for people who have access to internet.

  • There are 19 radio stations in the Inner Niger Delta, broadcasting in several languages. They transmit weekly bulletins about the situation of the flood and the prediction for the coming weeks in the period August-November. Here is the list of these stations:

  • An Atlas of the floodplains of the Inner Niger Delta has been produced. It includes maps of flooded areas in the northern and southern delta at different water levels (Akka being the reference point). The Atlas is meant for people who don't have access to internet. It allows them to see which areas will be flooded after they have heard on the radio or by phone about the predicted peak flood level. The full content of the Atlas is integrated in the website (see floodviewer) and can also be downloaded as pdf file (14 MB).
