Dear friends:

As the Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the World Landslide Forum 3, I want to extend a warm invitation to you to attend the Forum to be held in Beijing, China, June 2~6, 2014. The World Landslide Forum 3 is jointly sponsored by Ministry of Land and Resources, the People's Republic of China (MLR, PRC) and the Global Promotion Committee of the International Programme on Landslides (IPL), organized by International Consortium on Landslides (ICL) and China Geological Survey (CGS).

The World Landslide Forum will bring together government officials, scholars, international research and development communities, NGO representatives and numerous segments of the private industries to present their latest results on geo-hazard mitigation, especially, on landslide reduction and to exchange ideas on how to improve geo-environment safety around the world.

It will also become a phenomenal event for geo-hazard prevention because of its unique opportunity for professionals from all over the world to learn from each other on geo-hazard mitigation.

We will do our utmost to make this event one of the best and most successful to date, and we believe that all delegates will find their participation both professionally rewarding and personally enjoyable.

The post-forum field trips will have three options for the participants to choose. Each of these options is designed to allow the participants to better understand the development of landslides and the prevention in China, and to enjoy the oriental scenery and the harmonious coexistence of ancient civilization and modern culture.

I look forward to seeing you in Beijing in 2014!



Vice Minister, Ministry of Land and Resources
President, China Geological Survey
