CCOP-DMR-VIGMR Training course on Community Based Landslide Mitigation, Thailand, 17-20 July 2013

Landslide impacts are worsening worldwide and in some CCOP countries.  This trend is most likely to continue for the coming decades, killing and injuring peoples, damaging a lot of houses, infrastructure facilities and agricultural crops. In this context, establishment of community-based landslide watch networks is now considered as an effective solution to help locals promptly respond to this geohazard.

The CCOP-DMR-VIGMR project is the first of its kind being undertaken in our CCOP region, aiming to working on the risk of landslide in countries, to share experiences and support each other making our countries more resilient to the threats of landslide based on the development and extension of Land Watch Network. This CCOP-DMR-VIGMR Training course on Community Based Landslide Mitigation held this time in Thailand includes a seminar on 17 July 2013 in Bangkok and a following 3-day excursion to visit models of Community Based Landslide Mitigation in Phetchabun, Uttaradit, Chiang Mai provinces. The seminar and fieldtrip was attended by 9 participants from CCOP member countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, 28 local participants from the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) of Thailand and 5 CCOPTS staff.
