Detailed Description

A project in Shankarapur municipality addressed landslide risks by preparing inventory, coordinating data collection, modeling susceptibility, and deriving rainfall thresholds.

Key objectives of the project are:

  • To prepare detailed landslide inventory.
  • To coordinate with local government to collect available RS and DEM data of Shankarapur municipality.
  • To identify landslide conditioning factors and prepare LSM.
  • To develop landslide susceptibility model.
  • Derivation of rainfall threshold for landslides to trigger
