Abstract

Landslides, including slope failures, are one of the significant natural disasters in Malaysia. Its frequency and impacts such as injuries, loss of lives and damage to property has been increasing over the years. However, current policy measures and response towards landslide risk reduction have not taken into account the full spectrum of the problem. This paper discusses the landslide disaster risk reduction (LDRR) scenario in Malaysia taking into account the priorities and action plans proposed in the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015 (HFA). Issues related to landslide events, current practices and selected planning and management approaches that incorporate the HFA are highlighted.
