TFI Floods

Think for India theme – Floods

Floods create havoc for India every year when rains cause rivers to flood and we loose a lot of crop, livestock and lives leading to huge distress and economic losses.

Let us immersively deliberate and attempt to answer the following:

  1. What are the recent occurances of the problem in the last 5 years?
  2. What are some of the greatest disasters gloabally and in India? 
  3. What is the extent of the problem?
  4. Where are typically flood prone areas in India?
  5. Where are typically flood prone areas in globally?
  6. Are think tanks or institutions to address this in India and Globally?
  7. Who are some of the experts or thought leaders in this field?
  8. What are some of the bet practices and methods to address these? 
  9. How has technology helped thus far?
  10. What are the unsolved problems? That can be tackled.
  11. How has India and the states fared thus far  in responding to the problem and limiting impact from the problem?
  12. What should we do as a nation now?
