The Science for Humanitarian Emergencies and Resilience (SHEAR) programme funded by FCDO and UKRI NERC supports world-leading research to enhance the quality, availability and use of risk and forecast information.
SHEAR is delighted to share with you three complementary resources that bring together learning and knowledge from across SHEAR and published literature to provide an introduction to landslide early warning systems for practitioners, donors, and researchers in developing countries:
- The Introduction to Landslide Early Warning Systems resource provides an overall introduction to rainfall triggered landslides and the differences between local and regional early warning systems.
- The Introduction to Local Landslide Early Warning Systems resource includes an overview of monitoring and warning methods, the role of community engagement, and challenges to local landslide early warning systems.
- The Introduction to Regional Landslide Early Warning Systems resource includes an overview of data used, institutional roles, and dissemination and communication approaches.
We hope these introductory guides are useful for the LandAware community. For further information on the SHEAR programme and associated landslide projects and publications, please visit http://shear.org.uk.
