Slope Watch Workshop & Joint Walkabout

Slope Watch Workshop & Joint Walkabout

Penang Hills Watch and SlopeWatch organized a workshop aimed at empowering local communities to understand concepts regarding slope stability, identifying signs of slope failure, as well as how to look out for signs of impending landslides. About 40 people, mainly residents living near hill slopes attended the workshop.

The sharing was conducted by Eriko Motoyama , programme director of Slope Watch who shed light on many things related to slopes and landslides which were poorly understood.
