The book shows the problem of urban floods with real examples and how almost all the urban centres in the country are at the risk of floods today.

Why Urban India Floods highlights how unfettered urbanisation has led to the depletion of waterbodies in urban areas, which has pushed urban floods. The book shows the problem of urban floods with real examples and how almost all the urban centres in the country are at the risk of floods. It also highlights the need for immediate action to conserve and revive our water bodies.
