AbstractIn 2009, the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) initiated a project to develop national landslide guidelines and best practices as part of its natural hazard loss reduction effort. A literature review has been carried out as part of this project. More than 30 landslide guidelines from around the world were collected. This paper presents a brief review of these guidelines. The review will assist in the development of the GSC's landslide guidelines, as well as aid professionals and other stakeholders who wish to learn more about or develop their own landslide guidelines.
