We are pleased to be supporting new PhD research which is investigating impact-based early warning systems in Uganda. EfD’s Celia Petty is co-supervising Faith Mitheu, a Kenya-based student, who has recently started work on her PhD: “A model for impact-based flood early warning in Uganda: linking data on hazard, vulnerability and exposure to develop impact-based early warning in Uganda”.
As well as receiving supervision from EfD, Faith will be co-supervised by Ros Cornforth from the Walker Institute, and by University of Reading hydrologists Hannah Cloke and Liz Stephens. EfD’s input into this doctoral research will focus on the use of HEA Methodology within the project, integrating livelihoods impact analysis into the flood early warning work.
