Viet Nam News, Vietnam News Agency

As part of a project meant to build a database and mapping scheme that would facilitate actions to minimise damages which could occur from related natural disasters, six provinces will set up pilot landslide warning systems in several mountainous regions, reports Viet Nam News. The scheme will be implemented in two phases from 2012 to 2020 and gives priority to more concentrated residential areas. The first phase, between 2012 and 2015, will involve investigation, assessment and zoning for areas prone to landslides.
