5 Loss Reduction Strategies A successful loss reduction program must be based on effective application of landslide information at federal, state, and local levels. While recognizing that significant improvements in our ability to mitigate landslide losses undoubtedly will be developed in the future, a wide range of effective loss reduction.

Individual States and local jurisdictions can adapt the suggestions in this book to meet their own unique needs. Size Publication Date; Landslide Loss Reduction: A Guide for State and Local Government Planning.

According to available information, landsliding in the United States causes an average of 25 to 50 deaths and $1 to $2 billion in economic losses annually. Although all 50 states are subject to landslide activity. Washington, DC: The National Academies Press. doi: / The committee recommends that a national strategy for landslide loss reduction promote the use of risk analysis techniques to guide loss reduction efforts at the state and local levels.

Because the state of the art of landslide risk analysis is evolving, further development. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Wold, Robert L. Landslide loss reduction.

Denver, Colo.: Colorado Geological Survey, Dept. of Natural Resources, This book will help in readers deciding on their acceptable risk from landslides and if there is a need for loss- reduction and risk -reduction.

It is not possible to include here in detail all the landslide loss-reduction techniques, both structural and non-structural, that are currently available in the literature. The book aims to establish three foundations for delivering ex-ante landslide risk reduction:?a scientific base: landslide hazard can often be reduced through the construction of strategically aligned networks of surface drains;?a community base: community residents are not just seen as those?at risk.

Ina database of bills in the U.S. Congress. Landslide hazard analysis and mapping can provide useful information for catastrophic loss reduction, and assist in the development of guidelines for sustainable land-use planning. The analysis is used to identify the factors that are related to landslides.

The NRC panel suggests that substantially increased funding will be required to implement a national landslide mitigation program, and that as part of a year program the funding mix should transition from research and guideline development to partnership-based implementation of loss reduction measures.

This book documents the First World Landslide Forum, which was jointly organized by the International Consortium on Landslides (ICL), eight UN organizations (UNESCO, WMO, FAO. Landslide loss reduction: a guide for state and local government planning. The problem with landslide risk management is that it is seen as a series of events leading to landslide risk reduction.

It includes landslide monitoring, mapping, landslide forecast, engineering, slope strengthening, insurance and others. Strictly speaking, geological risk management includes: 1. Risk analysis and assessment; 2. Abstract This book has two main aims: to demonstrate to international development agencies, governments, policy makers, project managers, practitioners, and community residents that landslide hazard can often be reduced in vulnerable urban communities in the developing world, and to provide practical guidance for those in charge of delivering Management of Slope Stability in Communities.

Landslide Hazard and Risk brings together a wide range ofexperience, covering the social, economic and cultural context,management options, and the application of science and technology,for the reduction of risk from landslides. This book is dividedinto four major parts covering conceptual models in approachinglandslide risk, evaluation of risk.

The book’s nine chapters provide guidance to project managers and practitioners on the entire end-to-end process of community-based landslide risk reduction.
