The rainy season in Benin rhymes with recurrent flooding problems especially in Cotonou city.
The factors favoring flooding are four (4) orders: land use factors, factors related to drainage structures, factors related to relief, factors related to the collection of solid waste.
This phenomenon affects most of the sectors in this case road infrastructure, housing peri-urban cultures ... etc.
Losses of movable and immovable property, livestock, crops (granaries), loss of life; Electric shocks, cuts in roads, conflicts between neighbors, intra-urban refugees, drownings of children, epidemics (cholera, etc.), snake bites, death due to cooling, Economic problems, deterioration of school infrastructure, theft, starvation, non-repayment of loans to microfinance companies are also identified socio-economic consequences
In every rainy season, some households experience the nightmare of floods, especially in the most flooded neighborhoods of the economic capital of Benin, cotonou.
During these periods, large numbers of households move by finding refuge in public squares, and with neighbors. They become climate refugees.
