Southern Camps Infrastructure Risk to Flood and Landslide Hazards

    Updated: November 10, 2019

    Data is from REACH's Round 4 infrastructure mapping for camps south of Kutupalong (Camps 14, 15, 16, Chakmarkul, Jadimura, Unchiprang, Leda, & Neyapara). The steep slope areas were calculated in ArcGIS using 1m elevation contours prepared by IOM. The low lying, potential flood inundation areas were extracted from an elevation model in ArcGIS based on intersection with areas identified by IOM through community flood hazard mapping and UNHCR, which correspond to different elevation levels within each camp.

This dataset highlights the potential risks to camp facilities south of Kutupalong (Camps 14, 15, 16, Chakmarkul, Jadimura, Unchiprang, Leda, & Neyapara) associated with low lying areas and steep slopes, key factors in determining potential flood inundation and landslide risk. Note: these layers represent imperfect proxies for more detailed risk analysis. Soil characteristics have not been taken into account and areas immediately adjacent to steep slopes, above and below, may be affected during landslide events. Flood volumes have not been calculated.
