Bihar floods 2007: a field report

Source(s):  National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM)

This report draws important lessons from the 2007 floods in Bihar, India, which portray the State’s vulnerability to recurrent flood and recall the extensive devastation, destruction and disruption caused by the floods. It highlights the practical problems, dilemmas and challenges, and suggests measures for reducing the loss of life and property due to major floods. The study clearly establishes the needs for a comprehensive approach to flood hazards with a broader perspective of flood plain management, non-structural approaches, and institutional innovations, which may be used for integrated, comprehensive flood control strategies.
