Italy-Malaysia joint workshop on “Design, implementation and development of landslide early warning systems”

Outline: existing landslide early warning system and the related activities (LEWS) developed in Italy by CNR IRPI (the Institute for Geo-Hydrological Research of the National Research Council), and in Malaysia, by the Department of Mineral and Geoscience Malaysia (JMG), Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (KeTSA) will be described and discussed. Such systems, devoted to the forecast of rainfall induced landslides, are pre-operational or operational and produce at regular intervals daily or sub-daily forecasts about the likelihood of landslide occurrence throughout the country. Contributions to the workshop will describe the systems, their current state of operations, their input and output and their stakeholders. Additional contributions will discuss planned and developments of the systems, and additional topics related to landslide susceptibility, hazard and risk assessment.
