A toolkit for landslide early warning systems

Landslides are complex hazards that affect many areas of the world and cause significant loss of life and damage. Landslide early warning systems provide an opportunity to generate information in advance of such events, allowing for early actions that can reduce risks and impacts of these hazards. However, landslide early warning systems vary widely in…

Geohazard risk monitoring and mitigation approaches: Increasing resilience of the Himalayan road network

Climate change is leading to a more extreme environment and increasing the recurrence rate of natural hazards, making infrastructures subject to actions to which they had not necessarily been designed for. Risk estimation and mitigation measures deriving from climate change are creating new concepts that are being incorporated into the different infrastructure departments policies, resulting…

Using geospatial tools for nature-based solutions to reducing disaster and climate risks: A hands-on workshop session

Ecosystems in general and Nature-based Solutions (NbS) in particular are increasingly recognized for their role in reducing disaster risk and the harmful impacts of climate change.
Mangroves, sea grasses and corals have been proven to reduce wave energy and related impacts from storm surges; forests and other vegetation can reduce landslide susceptibility by removing excessive…
