Abstract

North-eastern regions of India are progressing slower in terms of development than in India’s mainland since the Independence of India in 1947. Moreover, the most triggering and frequently occurring factor, natural disasters, especially floods, adds more burden to the Local Government. Despite many natural disasters in recent years like floods and landslides, no or few disaster-related planning projects have been conducted so far to participate in any local or regional development projects to avoid the vulnerability of the people. On the other hand, Master Plan, Kakching (draft) n.a. has not been revised for the last three decades by the concerned authorities. To help in the development, we have demonstrated the assessment of green vegetation cover and impervious surface for the near future, benefit the labour cost and take less time in strengthening the upcoming plans in the case of Kakching, Manipur, India. This study analysed the spatio-temporal of vegetation cover and built-up area for the last two decades in the study area. Furthermore, we studied the trend analysis of vegetation and built-up area by comparing it with the flood extent. It is found that there is an enormous loss of vegetation cover and proliferation of urban areas in last two decades are detected. Therefore, we have recommended that the concerned authorities should integrate to strengthen and shape the future for better development plans to build urban resilience in changing climate.
