Landslide Hazard Zonation using GIS: A Case Study from Sindupalchowk Nepal


The paper overviews a case study from Sindhupalchowk, Nepal. Landslides caused significant damage and loss of life in hilly regions of Nepal. In response to a recent major landslide, a landslide hazard map for the Sindhupalchowk district was developed. This map considered factors like slope, relative relief, distance to roads and rivers, land use, and soil types. The map identified low, moderate, high, and very high-hazard zones, with approximately 40% falling into the high-hazard category. This early identification of hazard areas aimed to reduce future losses.
