Annual flooding and recurring drought have devastating impacts on communities in Southern Africa. In the Zambezi River basin, seasonal weather patterns often result in crop failure, shelter damage, livestock death, soil erosion and increased water and sanitation issues. Since late 2011, the American Red Cross has been working with communities in Binga district, Zimbabwe to identify and mitigate common hazards, as well as implement small-scale resilience projects such as latrine construction to improve household hygiene and building fuel-efficient cookstoves to reduce environmental degradation. At the same time, the American Red Cross is strengthening the capacity of the Zimbabwe Red Cross through trainings and community contingency planning support.

The Missing Maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the world (affected by humanitarian crises: disease epidemics, conflict, natural disasters, poverty, environmental crises). Building on HOT's disaster preparedness projects, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur.

When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".

Residential areas:

  • building=yes for all buildings
  • building=construction for buildings under construction

Road networks:

The roads that appear in the Bing imagery that are cutting through the bush, please tag as "highway=path". These are paths that are used for foot traffic between homesteads.

Wider roads that can still fit a vehicle should be tagged as highway=unclassified

Please refer to the Africa Highway Tags wiki page for instructions on mapping the road networks


Please map all waterways in the area


Please use the Bing imagery available though iD editor or JOSM
