India which has seen more than seven natural disasters in just ten years since Mumbai was flooded in 2005.
Pachauri , Chairperson of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, disasters in India are increasing. FLOODS in northern India, mostly in the small state of Uttarakhand, have wrought disaster on an enormous scale.
Many people are overwhelmed when such an extreme disaster like the June 2013 flooding in Uttarakhand, India happens. The scale of destruction is huge and thousands remain stranded in parts of northern India as they wait to be rescued from Uttarakhand where at least 5,000 people may have died due to the heavier than normal June monsoon rains.


Many who survived the initial flooding sat exposed and hungry for over a week awaiting rescue by the army, whose efforts were hampered by continuing bad weather. In April the Comptroller and Auditor General had warned parliament that the work of the National Disaster Management Authority was abysmal.
He arrived just as India’s home minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde, advised VIPs to stay away from the disaster-affected area, as they distracted rescue workers and diverted vital resources. Climatologists think India’s monsoons will become more volatile and intense in the coming century because of climate change.
Concerns by some with knowledge of the region indicate that mitigation efforts such flood prevention planning may have lessened the devastation of the floods, including measures to strengthen the embankments and setting up pre-warning systems so that those without electronic communication systems could have been warned earlier.


It has indeed proved to be the ineffectual retirement home for ex-civil servants its critics suspected. Meanwhile poorly regulated but rapid construction will doubtless continue, as locals struggle to meet the demand from fellow Indians for recreation and pilgrimages.
