Climate Resilient Infrastructure is Needed to Manage Urban Floods in Mumbai

Aashi Bagaria

Abstract: This research paper analyses the reasons for urban flooding in the Indian city of Mumbai, Maharashtra, and the ways of mitigating heavy inundation by developing climate resilient infrastructure. Increased urbanization and rapid climate change causing a rising sea level has put Mumbai in a dangerous position wherein there are risks of a large magnitude urban floods. The direct impact can be seen by the lack of shelter and growing diseases in vulnerable and marginalized populations of Mumbai. The urbanization has caused lack of green areas and natural ecosystems that can absorb the stormwater and reduce impacts of urban flooding. Thus, ideating and developing climate resilient infrastructure that is adaptable to sudden changes in climate will do well in managing this issue.
