AID WORKER DIARY: Mapping Bolivia's floods
28 Jan 2008 14:55:00 GMT

Severe flooding in Bolivia that began in December 2007 has affected more than 20,000 families and killed more than 30 people. The Bolivian government declared a state of emergency. Two MapAction volunteers, Emese Csete and Chris Ewing, deployed to Bolivia on 26 January in response to a request for emergency mapping support from the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Here are extracts from their reports during the mission.
