Flood Prevention/ Mitigation

Since ages, people have coped and learned to live with floods. They have generally settled in areas away from flood and have adapted agricultural practices which can sustain in flood waters. Traditional methods based on locally available resources have been used to minimize the damages during flood. With the increase in population, flood prone areas have been occupied and this is a principal factor in the huge losses presently seen. The various mitigation measures for flood can be categorized into structural and non structural measures.
