News 2011 WLF2

The Second World
Landslide Forum

FAO HEADQUARTERS, Rome
03 - 09 October 2011

Background

The World Landslide Forum (WLF) is a triennial mainstream conference aimed at gathering scientists, stakeholders, policy makers and industry dealing with the management of landslide risk. The first edition of WLF was organized in 2008 by the International Consortium of Landslides (ICL), UNESCO, WMO, FAO, UNISDR, UNU, UNEP, IBRD, UNDP, ICSU, WFEO, KU and the Japan Landslide Society at the United Nations University, Tokyo, and ended with the adoption of the 2008 Tokyo Declaration "Strengthening the International Programme on Landslides with UNISDR". Since then, many recent disasters due to mass movements have shown that there is an urgent need to translate science into practical applications for the benefit of local communities, governments and disaster relief organisations.

Objectives

The Second World Landslide Forum has the objective to further develop the outcomes of the First Forum in Tokyo 2008 by providing a global cross-cutting information and cooperation platform for all types of organizations representing academia, United Nations organisations, governments, private enterprises and individuals that contribute to landslide research, practice, education and decision making and are willing to strengthen landslide and other related Earth system risk reduction strategies. The emphasis of this forum will be "Putting science into practice" with special attention given to actual implementation of technology and research in everyday applications and procedures with the direct involvement of researchers, engineers, private enterprises, stakeholders as well as policy and decision makers.

GAP will contribute by showing the results of his research activity in collaboration with the Polytechnic of Bari and institutes of the National Research Council (ISSIA-Bari, IREA-Napoli, IRPI-Bari).
