A Cost Effective Technology for Reducing Landslide Risk


This is the presentation shared by Prof. Dr. Jib Raj Pokhrel and Prof. Dr. Prem Bahadur Thapa in the webinar entitled " A Cost-Effective Technology For Reducing Landslide Risk " on the 16th of July 2020. The webinar was organized by DPNet Nepal. It provides the measure for cost-effective community-based landslide risk reduction. Landslide risk in Nepal has escalated since the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake, with heightened incidents of aggravation and new slide initiation due to fragile ground conditions and heavy rains. This necessitates a cost-effective approach to landslide risk reduction, given the significant impact on lives and livelihoods, as observed in events like those in Myagdi and Tanahun in July 2020.
