“People of Assam are distressed due to the recent floods and erosion. The level of erosion that is taking place every year in Majuli is scary," Gogoi wrote. He emphasized that erosion results in more long-term damage than floods, stating, "Erosion ends up creating more long-term loss compared to floods. Villages, schools, acres of farmland, homes, and health centres are swallowed up by the rivers.”

Gogoi further elaborated on the social impact, noting, “It is the poor, especially women and children, who face the greatest brunt from climate change. We need massive investment in flood and erosion management in Assam. International institutions, local communities, district and state administrations, central government—everyone needs to lend a hand.”
