Title: Slope instability risks - approach methodology proposal based on a comparative analysis of several Unitary Development Plans
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: Landslides have always been a concern to public safety. These are characterized as widespreadand sometimes difficult to predict. One potential tool for landslide risk mitigation is territory planninglegislation. In Portugal, a specific instrument of this kind is the Unitary Development Plan (UDP).The aim of this work was to select a few UDP and assess how landslide risk is approached. Eight citycouncils were selected based on location, history of landslides, population and soil use, and the respectiveUDP were analyzed. This yielded that UDP generally have different approaches and frequently are notfully adequate to deal with landslide risk. This work converged in the proposal of improvement measuresfor UDP regarding landslide risk management, including risk mapping methodology. The developmentand international dissemination of this work was provided by Master in Occupational Safety and HygieneEngineering (MESHO) from Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP).
