  • The First World Landslide Forum is a global cooperation platform for all types of organizations from academia, United Nations, governments, private sectors, and individuals which are willing to contribute for landslide and other related earth system risk reduction.
  • It is neither a pure scientific/engineering meeting, nor a pure governmental and intergovernmental meeting, but a meeting cross-cutting many fields which may contribute to landslide and other related earth system disaster reduction.
  • Your active contribution and initiative will lead landslide risk reduction efforts in the global cooperation framework for the coming decade.
