Disaster Management

Last Updated: Saturday 04 July 2015

HINDU Kush-Himalayan (HKM) region - the youngest mountain system in the world - is characterised by unstable geological conditions and extreme weather events, triggering natural hazards such as debris flow and landslides. The peoples of this region suffer greatly from these disasters. Dissemination of knowledge on landslide management can help mitigate the hazards in the region. This in turn requires a multidisciplinary approach. The publication attempts to bring together studies on problem of landslides by pooling together diverse subjects such as geology, engineering geology, geophysics, geotechnical engineering, civil engineering, hydrology, meteorology and bioengineering.
