Infrastructuring Floods in the Brahmaputra River Basin

The effects of infrastructural projects in Assam that lead to fl oods in the Brahmaputra river are discussed.

A people-centric approach involving these communities in the decision-making process is needed to curb the recurrent fl oods and their aftermath.
