More Severe Floods in the Indus, Ganges and Brahmaputra Basins Likely in the Future
11 Oct 2018

Key Message: Floods will become more frequent and severe in the mountainous and downstream areas of the Indus, Ganges and Brahmaputra river basins, because of an increase in extreme precipitation events. Depending on the climate change scenario, the severity of flood events is expected to more than double towards the end of the century. Flood-resilient housing shows promise as an adaptation option to address this hazard.
