Invitation for ICL Supporter 2018


The International Consortium on Landslides (ICL) is an international non-governmental and non-profit scientific organization established in January 2002 by universities, institutes, government organizations, academic societies and other entities worldwide. The consortium aims to promote landslide research for the benefit of society and the environment, and capacity building, including education, notably in less developed countries.


In order to support landslide risk reduction efforts by scientists/engineers from developing countries and young scientists from developed countries, ICL publishes the monthly full color journal “Landslides” without full color printing fee and contribution fee. It has 2016 impact factor =3.657 and the most influential journal in the related field. ICL has organized World Landslide Forum every three years to promote global promotion of landslide disaster risk since WLF1 in Tokyo 2008, WLF2 in Rome 2011, WLF3 in Beijing 2014, WLF4 in Ljubljana 2017, then WLF5 will be organized in Kyoto 2020.


ICL is now planning to create the “Kyoto 2020 Commitment for Global Promotion of Understanding and Reducing Landslide Disasters” which will be signed in the Kyoto International Conference Hall, Kyoto, Japan during the Fifth World Landslide Forum on 2-6 November 2020. ICL supporters are invited to joint this Kyoto 2020 Commitment together with partners of the ISDR-ICL Sendai Partnerships 2015-2025 and ICL members and jointly cooperate for the global promotion of landslide disaster risk reduction.
