CATHALAC: Regional Landslide Risk Prediction Tool Developed for Mesoamerica

The Water Center for the Humid Tropics of Latin America and the Caribbean (CATHALAC), which also hosts a UN-SPIDER Regional Support Office, has recently developed an automated, online tool for predicting landslide hazards in Mesoamerica, a first of its kind effort at the regional level. “The tool will provide early warning for landslide events in Mesoamerica, potentially minimizing the loss of life and property,” commented Emilio Sempris, CATHALAC’s Director.
