Abstract

The World Landslide Forum (WLF) is a triennial mainstream conference aimed at gathering
scientists, stakeholders, policy makers and industry members dealing with the management of
landslide risk. The First World Landslide Forum, organized by the International Consortium of
Landslides (ICL), UNESCO, WMO, FAO, UNISDR, UNU, UNEP, IBRD, UNDP, ICSU, WFEO,
KU and the Japan Landslide Society, was held in 2008 at the United Nations University, Tokyo.
The 1st WLF adopted the 2008 Tokyo Declaration “Strengthening the International Programme on
Landslides with UNISDR”.

The numerous recent disasters due to landslides show that there is an urgent need to translate
science into practical applications to assist communities, governments and disaster-relief
organizations avert and mitigate future landslide disasters. For this reason, the explicit theme of the
Second World Landslide Forum, being organised for Rome, Italy for 3-9 October 2011, is to
connect landslide scientists with landslide stakeholders in a special landslide forum to align future
innovations in landslide science and technology with the future needs of humanity and the
environment.
