Year after year it is the same story. Millions of people get displaced in Assam and other north east indian states due to floods, precious human and animal lives are lost. In this video, I analyse the reason behind why these Assam floods happen. Since 1950, there have been 12 major floods, but in recent years the frequency of the floods have increased drastically. Deforestation in the Brahmaputra area, encroachment of floodplains, location of Assam, poor maintenance of embankments and climate change are a few of the reasons. I will specially focus on climate change and embankments in this video. Embankments are also called Levee or Dykes. I explain what they are, the problem with them and the solutions while talking up the Netherlands as a case study.
