Local Forum on Landslide Risk Reduction 2015
Community Discussion in National Level
Recent tragic occurrences of landslide disaster phenomena have led to grab the attention towards Sri Lanka as a landslide prone region in the world. It has been identified that 10 of the districts (out of 25) in Sri Lanka are highly prone to landslides and slope failures specially during rainy seasons.
This has triggered the necessity of developing a Landslide Risk Mitigation Master Plan for the country incorporating all responsible intervening agencies involved with Disaster Management.
The National Building Research Organization of Sri Lanka has stepped into take the initiative of setting up a local landslide forum to discuss the pressing matters starting from the grass root level to the top level specialists and forward the findings to the National Corner National Corner the International E-conference 2015 on Landslide Risk Reduction.
Since it is a current global issue, our intention is to discuss these national issues with global experts and assemble the knowledge to grasp the finest solution to solve the difficulties felt by the innocent communities as early as possible. We find it as the best way to mobilize the global cooperation towards human empowerment by unity and universality.
