A flood is considered the costliest natural disaster having a drastic effect on the economy. In the future, the flood rate is predicted to increase due to climate change and population growth globally. According to recent research, dams play a very vital role in the mitigation of flood risk under climate change. It was observed that about 15% fewer people were exposed to floods once in 100 years during the 21st century globally.
