Landslides, India - Urban Climate Change fact Sheets

Landslides occur due to a number of complex factors. However, researchers believe that heavy rains are one of the major causal factors for landslide. The climate scientists and IPCC Working Group I reports that more extreme weather with heavy rainfall is expected in future. This implies that climate change will increase the number of landslide incidents. This fact sheet discusses some solutions to prevent damage.
