  • In the intro, mention the recent flood in Chennai.
  • In the body, mention various factors such as increasing frequency of heavy precipitation due to climate change as noted in the IPCC’s sixth Assessment Report, poor planning urban planning, encroachment on drainage systems, clogging of the drainage system, violation of environmental laws and municipal by-law and natural factors such as high rainfall in short duration etc. In the suggestions mention changes in planning, implementation of laws and by-laws, cleaning and maintenance of drainage system, preparedness for floods etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to move away from land-centric urbanisation.
