Landuse planning is considered as an effective measure to avoid flood risk and reduce the loss of life and property. The strategic landuse planning at the local level supported by the increased knowledge of flood hazard is helpful to secure resilience to flooding. The change in the infiltration capacity of soil and soil cover associated with the human alteration and development increases the risk to the future flood events. Thus, the systematic assessment of land and water potential and planning the best landuse option in the area is important to reduce the future risk.
