Question and answer
explain briefly the cause of flooding in south africa nd problem
Many of the urban poor in Africa face growing problems of severe fl ooding. [ Increased storm frequency and intensity related to climate change are exacerbated by such local factors as the growing occupation of fl oodplains, increased runoff from hard surfaces, inadequate waste management and siltedup drainage. One can distinguish four types of fl ooding in urban areas: localized fl ooding due to inadequate drainage; fl ooding from small streams within the builtup area; fl ooding from major rivers; and coastal fl ooding.Floods are natural phenomena, but damage and losses from fl oods are the
consequences of human action. Although climate change is driven largely by modernization and development, all human activities, including land degradation by poor farmers and grazing fl ocks, contribute to environmental change. However, on a per capita basis, the poor in Africa are far more the victims of change than contributors to global warming and land degradation. ]
