Floodplains are nature’s flood storage areas. They evolve to make space when a river is periodically in a flood state. Society has adjusted alongside floodplains using their fertile soils for agriculture and the flat land as desirable locations to settle. As a result, vast stretches of floodplains are heavily modified and have lost their natural functions.
