The International Day for Disaster Risk Reductioncelebrates, since many years, how people and communities around the world are reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of reining in the risks that they face.
LandAware, the multi-disciplinary international network of experts in Landslide Early Warning Systems, sees worldwide cooperation and experience sharing among professionals and researchers as a primary driver for addressing and promoting (landslide) Disaster Risk Reduction.
We are young, we are just born, but we are already committed!
A News/Kyoto Commitment article has been published today (online first) on the scientific journal “Landslides” to present the LandAware network to the many readers of the journal.

[..] upcoming activities of LandAware will always be, given the stated purposes of the network, in line with Kyoto Landslide Commitment 2020 priority action no. 1, which aims at promoting “the development of people-centered early warning technology for landslides with increased precision and reliable prediction both in time and location, especially in a changing climate context.”
