Rainwater Harvesting for Flood Mitigation

Flooding is one of the major obstacles that hamper economic growth in our country. According to statistical research, floods are the reason for 40% of all deaths in India because of natural disasters. Moreover, the predominant reasons for flooding include heavy rainfall, unplanned urbanization, deforestation, and more. This ultimately urges us to think about rainwater harvesting for flood mitigation as India is highly vulnerable to floods.
