Floods play havoc every year. This is mainly uneven distribution of rain. When some areas are flooded some areas are drought stricken. Also during monsoon on some days there is heavy rain followed by many days without rain.
All efforts must be made by nations to study the reasons for flood and their prevention. In case prevention is not possible, evacuation of people should be done well in advance.
Deforestation is a reason for floods. Afforestation can prevent it. The sum of rain is constant. If it is spread over areas and months there is no problem. When some areas don’t get rain and there is a long duration heavy rains follow resulting in floods.
Once there is flood, effort must be made for quick outflow of excess water. This will make return to homes fast.
Money spent on armaments may be reduced and spent on flood prevention.
