Landslide Science for Sustainable Development

14-17 November 2023

Location: Palazzo dei Congressi, Florence.

The World Landslide Forums are organized every three years to bring together scientists, engineers, practitioners, businesses, and policy makers from around the world to share progress on landslide risk reduction on a global scale. Is co-organized by the International Consortium on Landslides and the UNESCO Chair in Prevention and Sustainable Management of Geo-hydrological Hazards at the University of Florence, under the International Programme on Landslides (IPL) supported by five United Nations’ organizations (UNESCO, WMO, FAO, UNDRR, UNU) and four international scientific organizations (ISC, WFEO, IUGS e IUGG).

The Forum is dedicated to Landslide Science for Sustainable Development to spread awareness that the adverse impact of landslides, together with other hazards, undermines efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations by 2030.

The General Conference on landslide risk reduction at the Opening Plenary Session addresses the latest strategies of the landslide community to help achieve the global targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. A Florence Declaration on Landslide Risk Reduction is adopted by the High-Level Panel Discussion in the first day.
