Abstract

‘Knowledge into action’ and ‘community engagement’ are expressions widely used in disaster risk management. We review the efficacy of such advocacy for landslide risk reduction, by reviewing examples of land planning approaches and that of an holistic strategy which embraces both ‘action into knowledge’ and ‘knowledge into action’, and which engages all stakeholders throughout implementation cycle.
