I guess you are looking for a more technical answer, from what I read in the newspapers, it seems heavy rains and water released from dams were the immediate causes. Also, the consistent exploitation of the environment also was a big contributing big factor.

I guess buildings in the area should adhere to construction practices that adhere to environmental norms. @NASIHA PARWIN M Have you taken a look at ferrocement technology? Do google it.

PS: Are you planning any project to address this issue?

Not really and I want some guidence
