In many areas of the world, the ability to forecast floods is limited by access to rainfall and river level data. Access to flood forecasts and warnings is proven to save lives, and can empower communities to respond to floods and reduce their impact.

We are developing a free on-line service for forecasting agencies to access rain and river data collected by the community using their mobile phones. For context, in India more than half of the adult population have mobile phones, including widespread use throughout village areas. We propose to tap into this resource.

We require funds for developing software, raising awareness, implementing a trial in India for the 2019 monsoon season, and promoting the system for global use.  We are hoping to raise AU$50,000 for the project, which will have a major impact on the multi-billion dollar cost of floods which occurs every year.
