The National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD) has conducted several surveys in the Indian State of Tripura to map flood-prone areas so that local communities can prepare for emergencies and hence avoid adverse economic impacts in the state.

Speaking on the issue, a senior NIRD official said that the primary objective of the exercise is to sufficiently train the local community to face disasters like floods before the SDRF and government institutions come into action.

The State Government selected West Champamura Gram Panchayat, one of the worst flood-affected zones of Tripura for carrying out the exercise.
