‘Data Sculpture’ on flood risks

The Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre has developed a ‘Data Sculpture’ that they exhibited at the Understanding Risk Forum held in Venice in May 2016. The sculpture shows the history of water volume flows along the Mono river in Togo from 2005 to 2015 and is being used to inform the Climate Centre’s flood warning project with the Togo Red Cross.
