AN ANALYSIS OF FLOOD RESILIENCE STRATEGIES ADOPTED BY SMALL SCALE INDUSTRIES IN KERALA
Flood is considered one of the major hazards responsible for extensive damage across the globe. The number of flooding events is a constant rise over the past decades in India, with chances of a likely increase over coming years with the warming climate. These constant recurring floods are a burden to the economy. This study focuses on researching the flood resilience measures taken by small-scale industries in Kerala pre-and-post-2018 and 2019 flooding events; with a focus on the five largely inundated districts of Kerala during the period.
