ICA Ecuador - Landslide Hazard

This layer contains information about the landslide hazard - by second-level administrative area - estimated during the Integrated Context Analysis (ICA) run in Ecuador in 2018. Data source: Secretaría Nacional de Gestión de Riesgos y SUN MOUNTAIN, 2011. The methodology used to estimate the landslide hazard included parameters such as the terrain slope, the land cover and final use, the soil texture and depth and the maximum expected rainfall on a daily and yearly basis. The classifications of these parameters have been combined into a final qualitative score. The main indicators used for the purposes of the analysis were the percentage of surface area at landslide hazard and the most recurrent landslide hazard class - according to SGR - by second-level administrative area.
