Publication Overview/Description

Nature-based Landslide Risk Mitigation involves the use of plant species to mitigate slope instabilities and provides sustainable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly approaches for landslide disaster risk reduction.

The Guidance Document is expected to assist professionals involved in landslide risk management activities (scientific staff, practitioners and staff at relevant local authorities) on application of Nature-based Solutions (NbS).

The document also elaborates on the possible multiple benefits offered by NbS at community level (Eg: creation of livelihood opportunities) while mitigating the landslide risk.

This document has been developed under ADPC's Nature Based Landslide Risk Management Project in Sri Lanka funded by the World Bank.
