Trade Process Analysis Database (TPAD)

UNNExT Business Process Analysis (BPA) of Trade Procedures has proved to be an effective tool to provide detailed understanding of international trade transactions, and is regarded as the first step to be conducted before undertaking other trade facilitation measures.

Regionalisation of rainfall runoff modelling for flood forecasting in Indonesia

Flooding is the most frequent disaster in Indonesia, causing significant damage. Almost all areas in Indonesia experience flooding and more than 1 million households are affected on an annual basis. In order to prevent flooding, some approaches have been applied such as flood mitigation dikes and flood detention basins but these cost a lot of time and money. On the other hand, the development of flood warning systems can be implemented relatively fast with relatively low cost, and it can minimize flood-induced economic damage and also avoid fatality.
