General objective:


The main objective is to develop an integrated and broadly applicable methodology for landslide resilience analysis in data-poor environments in Equatorial Africa and apply this in four study areas seriously suffering from landslides in Uganda and Cameroon.


Specific objectives:

  1. To produce landslide susceptibility maps and identify return periods of landslide-triggering rainfall events in order to estimate landslide hazards in the 4 representative areas (WP1);

  2. To analyze the types of elements at risk (immaterial and material) and their exposure, and to develop a methodology to economically value the consequences (WP2);

  3. To assess resilience strategies at household and at policy levels (WP3);

  4. To analyze the cultural premises underlying perceptions of environmental threats, to describe land rights and land management, and to identify culturally acceptable resilience strategies (WP4);

  5. To produce hazard and risk maps develop a toolbox to identify the most effective and acceptable resilience strategies (WP5).
