AbstractNatural Resources Canada 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.
