With the increasing need to take an holistic view of landslide hazard and risk, this book overviews the concept of risk research and addresses the sociological and psychological issues resulting from landslides. Its integrated approach offers understanding and ability for concerned organisations, landowners, land managers, insurance companies and researchers to develop risk management solutions. Global case studies illustrate a variety of integrated approaches, and a concluding section provides specifications and contexts for the next generation of process models.

Impacts of landslides range from site destruction, through problems for the maintenance of buildings and infrastructure, to an impediment for economic development. Previous attempts to address landslide risk have either treated components of the problem in isolation or characterised the wider issue from just a single discipline perspective. This book takes a holistic view of landslide hazard and risk through the development of integrated approaches to analysis, perception and management.
Landslide Hazard and Risk brings together a wide range of experience, covering the social, economic and cultural context, management options, and the application of science and technology, for the reduction of risk from landslides. This book is divided into four major parts covering conceptual models in approaching landslide risk, evaluation of risk, management of risk and end-to-end solutions of risk. It examines risk assessment and management from theory to practice, from conventional methodology to future possibilities.
