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. These projects play
a prominent role in “engineering”
fl oods, thereby creating
hazardscapes and precarious
conditions for the riverine
communities. A people-centric
approach involving these
communities in the
decision-making process is
needed to curb the recurrent
fl oods and their aftermath.
