The present work aims at answering the following research questions: (a) to infer on the causes of vulnerability (e.g. in infrastructures) to landslides and assess the contribution of these factors to vulnerability risks in disaster management; (b) to address policy implications for planning solutions to help reducing the risk of vulnerability to landslides in the Italian context. To answer to these questions we assess the concept of vulnerability in the context of natural disasters. Second, with a Multinomial Logit regression we infer data on the order of damages, with the characteristics of landslides in order to study the relationship between the vulnerability of structures and infrastructures, with the landslide phenomenon. Third, we argue on the need of an effective policy strategy at national level in line with the indications given at EU level.

Abstract

The present work aims at answering the following research questions: (a) to infer on the causes of vulnerability (e.g. in infrastructures) to landslides and assess the contribution of these factors to vulnerability risks in disaster management; (b) to address policy implications for planning solutions to help reducing the risk of vulnerability to landslides in the Italian context. To answer to these questions we assess the concept of vulnerability in the context of natural disasters. Second, with a Multinomial Logit regression we infer data on the order of damages, with the characteristics of landslides in order to study the relationship between the vulnerability of structures and infrastructures, with the landslide phenomenon. Third, we argue on the need of an effective policy strategy at national level in line with the indications given at EU level.
