In this regard, I am glad to report that interest on Landslides as a major disaster form has grown in the country and the world over and we know of a number of institutes and technologies now working on LEWS.
To name a few:
* Project LANDSLIP working on developing a regional landslide EW system in the Darjeeling and Nilgiris region of India.
* IIT Indore working in the CHIBO-PASHYOR area of Kalimpong on sensor based EW system.
* GSI on community based landslide early warning system in Giddey (Kurseong).
* Amrita University on LEWS in East Sikkim.
* LHASA system in Rio.
All in all, good news for us who live in landslide prone regions of the world.
