The LULC of the Bilate catchment was grouped into five classes (Figure 3(e)). The LULC map of the Bilate catchment include 3,892.2 km2 (69.2%) of intensively cultivated, 882.3 km2 (15.7%) of moderately cultivated, 590.5 km2 (10.5%) of shrub-land, 221.9 km2 (3.7%) of grassland, and 38 km2 (0.7%) of water body (Table 7). Land use and land cover are crucial factors in identifying areas that are at risk of flooding (Ghosh & Kar 2018).
