This report intends to set out a framework for government projects which are undertaken to protect land from floodplain through construction of dykes or embankments. Construction of these have caused multiple repercussions which are mostly long term impacts making it difficult to make predictions of the project at the beginning. The research objective is addressed by understanding the issues that occurred from the flood control project ” Meghna Dhonogoda Irrigation Project ” (MDIP).
