But what we do - except lip service - no concrete policy and decisions are taken that how to curb and control the Flood which eats everyone - widespread-rains & thunder-showers vulnerable low lying areas in Sind, Baluchistan, Punjab, Khyber Paktoonkhawa, Kashmir & Gilgit-Biltistan.
No consensus (so far) for a concrete solution that how to handle the persistent Floods the heavy rains of Monsoon which inundates & cripples 1/3 area of the country.
Heavy rains are caused water levels in a river to rise - As the river flows downhill, it may overflow its banks, flooding communities located downstream. A dam can prevent this by stopping or slowing rushing water, allowing it to be released at a normal rate.
Crops irrigation by farmers
Dams are built so that farmers may have water to irrigate their crops, or to provide a source of water for a village or town.
This year 2012 if we read the current flood vulnerability, apart from rural areas, flood water inundated urban areas in six major districts of Sindh. District like Jacobabad, Kashmore, Kandkhkot, Shikarpur, Sukkur, Khairpur and Sukkur were hit badly by floods.
Further - Strong current from Jhal Magsi, Naseerabad and Jaffarabad districts of Baluchistan triggered a flood like situation in the Right Bank Outfall Drain at Qambar-Shahdakdkot district and posed a serious threat to Shadadkot town.
The flood also wiped out more than 2.2 million hectares of arable land, depriving rural communities of food and resources, said the Red Cross.
