UL FGG singed on 18 September 2019 the Kyoto Landslide Commitment 2020. This decision to support international efforts for landslide risk reduction, led by the International Consortium on Landslides (ICL) based in Kyoto, Japan (https://icl.iplhq.org/), was based upon the successful cooperation of the UNESCO Chair on Water-related Disaster Risk Reduction in the UNESCO/KU/ICL UNITWIN Cooperation Programme “Landslide Risk Mitigation for Society and the Environment” (http://iplhq.org/unitwin/), established on 18 March 2003, and the ICL full membership of UL FGG since 2008.

UL FGG is shortly presented in a paper in the category “News/Kyoto Commitment” in the journal Landslides (link).
