AFMA adopts a multi-pronged strategy to make Alexandria self-reliant in flood resilience. AFMA aims at reducing both the probability and impact of flood risk in a sustainable manner.

AFMA focused on:

(i)creating an information system based on rainfall forecasting;

(ii) assessing mitigation action based on rainfall and flood forecast;

(iii) constructing and operating early waring hardware and infrastructure; and

(iv) building capacities at various levels such as in academia, government agencies and in the society.
