AFFIRD Conducts Public Survey on Kampala Flooding to find solution

Please take the Survey on Flooding in Kampala

In a bid to find lasting solutions to flooding in Kampala in particular and other major towns in the country, Non Governmental Organsation (NGO) AFIRRD (African Forum for International Relations in Research & Development) has launched a public survey targeting Kampala District residents, to provide feedback and to capture the public perceptions on floods – causes and effects, on the communities. They survey is carried online, and promoted online on our website, other websites and on social media – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, with a link to the survey. The Survey can be accessed on this link: Survey on Flooding in Kampala

Below are the most flooding-prone areas in Kampala, withiin the City and its suburbs. The most flooded areas include;

  • Kasubi
  • Katanga
  • Kisenyi
  • Nalukolongo
  • Kabuusu
  • Katwe
  • Namungoona
  • Kinawataka
  • Queen’s Way
  • Ssebaana Kizito Road (Former Nakivubo Mews),
  • Kabuusu junction,
  • Jinja Road roundabout
  • Kyambogo-Banda

Flooding often leaves dozens of people dead and sweeps makeshift houses away, dents structures and cuts off roads and bridges. Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) is always in the spotlight over the issues of flooding and poor drainage in Kampala but never quite resolves the biggest problems.

In this survey we aim to capture public opinion on the issue, and the findings will help a great deal in our community campaign and engagements with authorities
