A preliminary debris assessment of Mosul is now online. This initial mapping estimates that there is almost 11 million tons of residential debris as a result of the destruction in the city. This is a preliminary estimation that should be regarded as an absolute minimum and is subject to verification in the field. The actual amount may be several factors higher, among other due to the expected voluntary demolition of severely damaged buildings.
This assessment was produced by UN Environment, Disaster Waster Recovery and Urban Resilience Platformfacilitated by data provided by UN-Habitat’s Mapping and Data Portal.
