natural disaster in costal areas in india



  1. 0 Votes

    India is one of the world’s leaders in natural disasters, from hurricanes to floods to tornadoes. The death toll for the less urbanized areas still remains high, as regular maintenance of buildings and general preparedness have only exacerbated the situation. In recent years, though, the Indian government has made more effort to brace for said disasters by passing the Disaster Management Act of 2005, and has cut down the deaths by a staggering amount. Another part of the problem is that population explosions have forced poorer citizens to relocate to unsafe areas, mostly on the coasts of the peninsula, and systematically increase the deaths that occur during disasters in the country. However, the World Bank is working with the Indian government on multi-million dollar projects to help prepare and defend people from natural disasters.
