Abstract: Assam is a flood prone region due to its numerous rivers and heavy rainfall. Assam represents highly flood-prone region characterized by severe hazards of floods. Although occurrence of flood has been an age-old phenomenon in the riverine areas of this region, the extent of damage caused by the flood has increased significantly in recent years. With more than 40 percent of its land surface susceptible to flood damage, the total flood-prone area in the Brahmaputra valley is about 3.2 Million hectare. Flood occurs when the capacity of the river channel to carry the discharge is exceeded. Notun Rangagora gaon of Tinsukia district of Assam is is largely control by the Dibru river and frequently affected by flood during the heavy showers in monsoon. An empirical study was done in flood prone village through simple random technique. Notun Rangagora gaon is assessed as one of the most flood and erosion affected village of the Tinsukia district where strategie are extremely essential to mitigate the gravity of suffering of the effected people and to upgrade the socio-cultural and economic conditions by the sustainable protection of the village. The increasingly growing flood and erosion problems have been affecting human habitation, economy as well as cultural landscape. The main livelihood in the village is agriculture and this sector is badly affected by the flood water every year. In order to sustain the rural livelihood, it is important to sustain resources in scientific way. Food security and environmental quality are the important aspects of Sustainable rural development and pre and post flood preparedness and management is essential to cope with the problem of flood.
