In this EPISODE of #AskJP English Q&A, Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan delves into the crucial topic of urban flooding and explores how embankments and river training play a pivotal role in mitigating this growing issue. He unravels the significance of these engineering marvels in safeguarding our cities from the devastating impacts of flooding.

Urban flooding has emerged as a pressing concern in recent years due to rapid urbanization and climate change. As cities expand, their natural drainage systems are compromised, leading to increased vulnerability to flooding during heavy rainfall or storms. Solutions like embankments and river training offer effective ways to combat this menace.

Embankments are raised banks constructed along riverbanks or coastlines to prevent water overflow during flood events. These protective barriers act as a first line of defense, shielding communities and infrastructure from inundation.

River training involves engineering techniques that modify a river's natural course to enhance its capacity to carry and discharge water efficiently. By channelizing the flow and removing obstructions, river training minimizes the risk of overflowing and enables rivers to safely navigate through urban landscapes. He highlights examples of training of rivers around the world that has had positive externalities on urbanisation.
