At the UNDP Sudan Accelerator Lab, we are currently engaged in a project aimed to preserve and protect indigenous knowledge and indigenous knowledge systems across Sudan. The pilot for this project was introduced in Tutti Island in Sudan. As a result of the major floods Sudan has witnessed throughout history, the people of Tutti as a community have adopted various disaster relief management skills, to prevent the floods from harming the civilians of Tutti. The interviews were conducted with Tutti locals who have experience the communal efforts to minimize the effects of floods.
