50% of central hills are landslides.

50% of Sri Lanka’s central highlands are prone to landslides, said senior geologist Laksiri Indrathilaka of the Landslide Research and Risk Management Division of the National Building Research Institute.

Therefore, he mentioned that although the people should pay close attention to the condition of the land during the construction of buildings and roads, the fact that the people are not interested in it is a reason for the frequent occurrence of landslides. Therefore, it is very important to get the recommendations of the National Building Research Institute when carrying out development work in mountainous areas.
