Effects of Floods policy in Pakistan and Management Issues: (Case of District Dera-Ghazi Khan)

Abstract


Flood is a recurring calamity in Pakistan. Every other year, it destroys infrastructure and claims hundreds of lives. Thousands of people have become the victim of floods in Pakistan. It is difficult for developing countries like Pakistan to control and curb the menace of flood. The present study explores the challenges faced by the people due to flood disaster. This research scrutinizes the crisis of floods in the district “Dera-Ghazi Khan” during the year 2012. To collect the information, a brief questionnaire was constructed for the sample of population. We have applied the correlation technique and Chi Square distribution to seek out the degree of association among different variables. Flood-affected people face serious challenges during floods, and the management procedure seems too inadequate to prevent anxieties of the people. Proper budgeting for the arrangement of the flood-affected communities, technical efficiency and coordination in coping with floods disaster can minimize the brutal effects.
