Some good news about landslides

An excerpt from the Govt of India "Guidelines on Landslides"

"Unlike Earthquakes and Floods, Landslides are localized events and are induced by some causative factors, which are well understood. This hazard can be most effectively controlled or reduced to the minimum level if initiatives and activities are based on the most modern technological and scientific approaches and the policy is implemented through a well coordinated institutionalized mechanism"
