Gray Engineering vs Nature Based Solutions

Details

Use technology-based monitoring techniques to help monitor landslide risk, such as geotechnical monitoring, remote sensing, and satellite imagery.

Capital Cost

Low/Moderate – depends on the resources needed to implement systems/Monitoring

Operations & Maintenance

Moderate – will require continuous monitoring

Effectiveness

Moderate – early warning systems can reduce loss of lives and property damage

Flexibility

High – technologies can be scaled as needed

Barriers to Implementation

Technology; capacity; resources for consistent monitoring

Equity

Ensure that the alerts from early warning systems use a variety of communication channels (e.g., radio, text message, social media, television) to reach broad and inclusive audiences
