BOULDER: Accounting for Boulders in Landslides-flood Disaster Evaluation and Resilience

Dr. Benedetta Dini, Researcher, University of East Anglia, shared the preliminary findings of the BOULDER project with the project partners and government authorities.

BOULDER project aims to enhance understanding of the boulder production on hillslopes and transport in rivers in order to account for boulders in landslides and flood disaster evaluation and resilience in the Upper Bhotekoshi region.

The government stakeholders are very positive with the project results so far and look forward for its practical use in development warning systems and infrastructure planning.
