AbstractThe Earth Science Sector of Natural Resources Canada, through its Geoscience for Public Safety Program, has initiated the development of national technical guidelines and best practices related to landslides. With this initiative, Canada, as a world leader in the field, will actively contribute to reduce losses from landslides. The guidelines will provide Canadian engineers, geoscientists and other landslide practitioners with a state-of-the-art document related to the science and applied science of landslides and associated loss reduction. This paper summarizes the approach taken to develop the national technical guidelines on landslides and presents the proposed contents of the document.
