The research entitled “Smart Landslide Information System” led by the research team of the Department of Civil and Engineering of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute was completed in November 2017. A hilly terrain and seasonal torrential rainfalls present Hong Kong with the ideal conditions for landslides. With the advent of climate change, the number, scale, spatial extent, and frequency of landslides are expected to be unprecedented. With a comprehensive and world-leading slope safety system in place, there are always opportunities to examine ways to embrace technology and try to further enhance the management of landslide disasters to cope with the dynamic climate conditions that the world is facing.
