Physical Factors :
-Relief of river basin
-Permeability of ground
-Depth of river
-Number of tributaries

Human Factors :
-How built up an area is
Can't think of any others

Hope that gave you some ideas

Also, climate for physical and for human there'd be urbanisation, straightening of rivers (should increase discharge), water extraction from a river for industrial purposes maybe?

This is true; meandering rivers tend to be shallower on the inside of corners as that is where most of the bed load the river is carrying gets deposited (forming point bars)

How do you lay the answer out?

Human: deforestation, urbanisation, arable farming involving ploughing, bridges across rivers.

Physical: saturated soil, woodlands, steep slopes, natural grasslands
