Many ASEAN Member States are experiencing increased landslide risk due to climate change and high human population and activity near fragile high exposure areas. Appropriate mitigation measures suffer from inadequate hydro-meteorological observation (rainfall, temperature, water level) information due to lack of adequate monitoring and measuring instruments and limited institutional and human resources capacity to install enough monitoring stations. Landslides are localized in nature. Addressing them involves a complex mix of physical, social and cultural factors. Building a disaster resilient ASEAN community may require a significant overhaul of existing disaster risk management systems.
The main objective of these guidelines is to assist AMS conduct landslide risk assessments and mapping by integrating climate change impacts at the river basin level. They are therefore different from other guidelines that reference historical trends and cover regular landslide events. These guidelines are intended to be applied at the river basin level for integrated landslide risk management and planning. The technical report showcases the application of the methodologies described in the guidelines developed as part of the project. They will be useful to:

ASEAN Project on Disaster Risk Reduction by Integrating Climate Change Projection into Flood and Landslide Risk Assessment (ASEAN DRR-CCA) is supported by the Government of Japan through the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF).
