Urbanisation and inland development has led to reduced permeable ground and natural water reservoirs leading to frequent flooding during extreme weather. Lack of planning and foresight by planning agencies delineated by sectoral boundaries has also led to this as well. Flood mitigation will need engineering systems such as strengthening and widening of rivers and the installation of levees or check dams.
