Bosnia and Herzegovina: UNDP seeks local GIS expert to establish spatial data repository
Deadline: 13 July 2015
Duration of Initial Contract :Aug 2015 – June 2017, approx 120 days
The overall objective of this assignment is to establish a spatially enabled data repository which will serve to store, maintain and manage all information pertaining to flood risk and to link spatial and temporal datasets such as river flows, rainfall etc. The data repository will provide a structured environment to enforce data integrity and support data auditing, versioning and data quality, and to facilitate sharing of important hydrometeorological datasets. Audit trails, as well as structured and categorised schemas, will make data collation, manipulation and analysis more manageable.
River basin management is inevitably a multidisciplinary and an inter-departmental undertaking, and such a structured GIS data repository is envisaged to provide the framework within which to approach flood risk management in a multi-disciplinary manner and to enable data sharing among relevant stakeholders.
In order to develop flood vulnerability maps, a GIS-based tool will be developed to integrate various spatial socio-economic data with the flood hazard maps, and to produce vulnerability maps, which will include damages and loss of life estimates. In close collaboration with other technical experts tools, methods, guidelines and procedures for recording flood events should be developed, that will enable undertaking post-event surveys and assessing vulnerability to flooding as well as assessing the effectiveness of flood mitigation measures in reducing vulnerability and damages for long-term future management of flood risk within the catchment.
Quality control and assurance system setup to ensure data quality also needs to be established.
