ecorisQ is actively present as a sponsor at the Sixth World Landslide Forum in Firenze (Italy), which takes place from 14-17 November 2023. The Forum is entitled Landslide Science for Sustainable Development and contributes to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, through the Kyoto Commitment for Landslide Risk Reduction which was signed in 2020 by approximately 90 institutions. The aim of the Forum is to create a common platform to promote cooperation between scientists, technicians, experts and policy makers dealing with landslides in order to define common priority actions for risk reduction on a global scale. The Sixth World Landslide Forum is taking place on the sixtieth anniversary of the Vajont landslide, the largest landslide disaster in Italy, which caused more than 1900 deaths.
