As a result of climate change, we are experiencing an increase in the number and frequency of landslide events, primarily due increased rainfall. Since 2003 we have been developing our landslide project
with the establishment of the Irish Landslides Working Group and their subsequent report on Landslides in Ireland
and a landslide susceptibility map. Following this have also developed a database which now hosts several thousand individual events in Ireland. We are currently working with key stakeholders and research groups to further develop this database and a landslide hazard map.
