The geohazard team at GDG is delighted to have been commissioned by the World Bank to undertake a landslide hazard and risk pilot study for the Mancomunidad Gran Ciudad del Sur, Guatemala.

The objective of this study is to determine landslide susceptibility and hazard zoning in a main pilot area of approximately 25km2. This project builds on GDG's reputation as leaders in landslide risk assessments and slope stability analysis.

Over the past 5 years, we have worked on a range of national and international projects and have amassed unique experience in predicting landslide behaviour, quantifying landslide mechanisms, developing susceptibility maps, hazard zoning and quantitative risk modelling.

This recent Guatemala project provides an excellent opportunity to apply these skills to a new environment and we look forward to working with both the World Bank, the national and local authorities to deliver a bespoke project solution.

If you have slope stability or landslide concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
