Abstract [en]

Measures to prevent landslides are an important part of the urban planning process, both with regard to the present-day climate and to long-term climate change. Landslide risk maps provide an illustration of the location of sensitive areas that may require investigation in more detail. These illustrations are achieved by mapping the geotechnical conditions and the societal consequences that could arise in conjunction with a landslide. Landslides could potentially impact a large number of people and key societal functions. Alongside the computation of the probability of a landslide in the land-slide risk mapping, the consequences of a landslide in the river valley also need to be assessed. In this study, the consequences for buildings and transport routes in the area of analysis, as well as contaminated areas (MIFO-classified areas), were evaluated qualitatively based on four aspects: life, environment, economic impact and societal function. The classification was performed in a GIS-environment using nationally available data of buildings, roads and railway networks. Contaminated land areas were digitized and classified in cooperation/collaboration with the County Administrative Board and local authorities. The consequences were divided into five categories and visualised in 10 x 10 m squares. This paper traces the methodological potentials and challenges of valuing and mapping the societal consequences of landslides in the Säveån river valley, in southwestern Sweden.
