Indigenous Knowledge in Landslide Disaster Management
Incorporate the traditional knowledge of local tribes and indigenous communities to fill gaps in existing scientific knowledge in order to facilitate the process of landslide disaster prevention and preparedness in sustainable ways.

Prioritized Areas:

  • Finding the indigenous knowledge transmitted either orally or experientially among the local communities.
  • Extract the best practices that have been used by the indigenous communities to survive in their habitats incorporating their rich knowledge in nature and natural phenomena.
  • Identify how traditional knowledge could be incorporated appropriately into the existing societal knowledge.
