    The problem of geological and landslide risk management is seen as series of events leading to risk reduction, including risk analysis, risk assessment, risk mapping, vulnerability evaluation, concept of acceptable risk, monitoring organization, engineering-technical methods, insurance, and others. The problem is investigated on the examples of Moscow and : Valentina Svalova. Landslide risk assessment is the process of making a decision recommendation on whether existing risks are tolerable and present risk control measures are adequate, and if .

    Introduction. Chapter 4 of the methodology book gives an overview of the methods that could be used for landslide susceptibility and hazard assessment for three relevant scales of analysis in the Caribbean island countries: National scale (,), Local scale ((,) and Site investigation scale (,). The analysis requires certain spatial data, that are collected . Landslide risk assessment and management comprises the estimation of the level of risk, deciding whether or not it is acceptable, and exercising appropriate control measures to reduce the risk when the risk level cannot be accepted (Ho et al., ).It requires the following issues to be addressed: (a) probability of landsliding, (b) runout behavior of landslide debris, (c) Cited by:

    This doctoral thesis presents a novel approach to landslide risk assessment that explores the various dimensions of landslide risk in an integrated perspective. The research approach introduced here is tailored for use with landslide databases and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). A landslideBrand: Springer International Publishing. “Landslide Risk: Assessment, Management and Reduction is devoted to landslide research on the base of the risk concept. It is based on the author’s scientific investigations in particular during participation in many international projects in Taiwan, China, India, Italy, USA, Vietnam, New Zealand, Australia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Norway, Brazil, Japan, Greece, France, Germany, the .
