We conduct comprehensive assessments of flood and erosion-prone areas to identify areas at risk and prioritize interventions.

We are committed to raising awareness and educating communities on disaster preparedness, environmental conservation, and sustainable land use practices.

EDOFEWMA collaborates with a wide range of stakeholders, including government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community groups, and international organizations, to develop and enforce regulations for sustainable land use and water management.

We continually monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our mitigation measures to ensure that they are achieving their intended outcomes and making a positive impact.

EDOFEWMA invests in research and innovation to develop new technologies and approaches for flood and erosion management, staying at the forefront of best practices in the field.
