Abstract

In the last years, natural disasters have become more frequent and their impacts have reached a large number of people. When these events happen in unprepared regions, they can cause human and material losses. The consequences can be even more catastrophic when the responsible entities are not properly prepared. To minimize the impacts of extreme weather events, especially extreme rain which can trigger severe floods, this paper proposes a methodological approach to monitor floods through open source software, based on watershed's delineation. The suggested approach can be a tool to support disaster risk reduction planning.
