PDF File Size: 3.6 MB | Download   
Flooding is a common phenomenon in the Himalayan Rivers. Every year floods affect thousands of people in the Himalayan region. Every year the monsoon floods of immense magnitude from the Himalayan Rivers cause huge loss in terms of damage and disruption to economic livelihoods, businesses, infrastructure, services and public health. Long term data on natural disasters suggests that floods are by far the most common cause of natural disasters in this region. This has both an immediate effect such as loss of life by drowning as well as a long term effect such as the spread of disease. Fifty five percent of all people whose lives have been affected by natural disasters are the victims of flooding. Between 1980 and 2008, every year an average of 10 million people suffered flood damage,a statistic which makes floods the most devastating of all natural disasters.
