Landslides Risk Reduction and Resilience Conference 2019

Landslides Risk Reduction and Resilience Conference 2019. Why?

  1. Need is for developing technology to anticipate disasters like landslides and develop infrastructure to quickly respond to minimise the damage.
  2. Landslides have attracted global attention as they may cause huge havoc on communities, livestock, environment leading to huge loss of lives.
  3. On the one hand landslides effect loss of infrastructures-roads, buildings, bridges, communication systems etc, on the other, they may lead to stagnation of human activity and mobility.
  4. Landslides can destroy the structures of our culture and heritage and erase the cultural and historical identities of the people.
  5. Landslides are a natural calamity but of late, our life styles, our greed and irresponsible planning along with global warming and climate change are also contributing to them and the damage there of.
  6. Since the adoption of the Disaster Management Act 2005, the Government has taken a number of initiatives to strengthen the resilience capacity of all the stakeholders at different levels.
  7. But to become a Disaster Resilient Nation, still need to go a long way and It is in this context, conferences such as these would prove extremely beneficial.
