Central America: Population exposure to landslide susceptibility (high, very high)

The intention of this map is to give a quick overview for decision makers on a supra-regional or national/subnational level about the risk exposure of the population in landslide prone areas. The classification used here runs from yellow (few people exposed) to red (many people exposed). The class width of the yellow-to-red division has been chosen to facilitate the visual representation of the variability of values obtained in the assessment. White colored Municipios don’t have surveyed settlement areas exposed to landslide susceptibility zones ‘high’ or ‘very high’ or the landslide hazard is not relevant, either.
