This book is a significant step towards a better understanding of landslide problems existing in Himalaya and its solutions for reducing risk. To promote incentives for undertaking landslide risk reduction activities, and how remote sensing and other Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) methods coupled with civil engineering and bio-engineering methods are helpful in reducing landslide risk and sustainable development in holistic manner. It offers a timely antidote to the existing problems in landslide management in Himalaya through strengthening landslide DRR.
This volume will be indispensable to scholars and researchers of landslide disaster management, environment and development studies as well as policy makers and those in administrative, governmental, development and construction sectors.
