Natural, structural and infrastructural systems are seriously threatened by a natural disastreous phenomena, such as landslides, which can be induced by climate, or earthquackes, or anthropic action. Their diffusion and the the damage intensity of their effects is highest especially in mountaneus countries of severe susceptibility and intense urbanization.
The mitigation of landslide risk requires a coherent scientific programme of slope characterization, stability analysis, monitoring and hazard assessment, for a wise selection of the mitigation strategies in light of the diagnosis of the landslide mechanism, in order to identify the most sustainable design. This special issue “Innovative Strategies for Sustainable Mitigation of Landslide Risk” is framed within such a programme and is intended to contribute to three essential actions for the risk mitigation: 1) the monitoring of the processes, 2) the modelling of the processes to diagnose the landslide mechanism and identify the most appropriate remedial measures, and 3) the development of innovative design strategies.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
