Building on the work in other flood-prone wards across the city, Ramani Huria will extend mapping to four additional wards. These wards will be mapped by students from Ardhi University and the University of Dar es Salaam, in collaboration with community members from the respective wards.

The mapping of the wards is expected to take around two weeks and once completed, the data and maps will be presented to the community members in closing forums.
