Development of Web-based Digital Landslide Early Warning System (LEWS) Dashboard in Neelkantha Municipality, Dhading


This factsheet outlines the progress made after the development of digital EWS in Neelkantha Municipality.

The Neelakantha Municipality in Dhading District, Nepal, has developed a Web-based Digital LEWS with the assistance of USAID's ATEE program. The LEWS aims to provide real-time and forecast rainfall information, visualize landslide likelihood, and issue alerts to the Local Emergency Operation Center (LEOC). The system integrates historical landslide data, a Landslide Susceptibility Model (LSM), and a rainfall threshold model. The digital dashboard employs algorithms and models to assess landslide risk based on saturation levels, ground movement, and climate data. It also incorporates information from various sources, such as weather stations and soil moisture sensors, for comprehensive monitoring and analysis. The objective is to enhance preparedness and emergency response by prioritizing actions based on the potential risk of landslides in vulnerable communities. The development of the LEWS is crucial in mitigating the increasing landslide risk due to climate change and unplanned anthropogenic activities in the region.
