Abstract

Landslide occurs in most part of the world. It exists in underwater or on land. The effects of one of this Mother Nature can be disastrous and claiming many lives and not to mention the cost for the infrastructure that are destroyed. These phenomena can be either happens at the non-earthquake area and vice versa. Most contribution to this situation is the excessive pore water pressure and climate change. Pore water pressure can make the soil interaction become weak hence reducing the shear strength of the soil. Once it weak, only matters of time the landslide would occur. Climate change can affect the landslide area by rain, snow, or heat. In many areas, landslides have different type and shape. Ranging from the material, it carried until to the suitable mitigation. Mitigation can be consists of structure. drainage or internal slope reinforcement application depending on the area. Some area of landslides might have two or more mitigation option depending on the area, cost, and the purpose of the prevention. Some of the mitigation structures are use to provide facility in certain cases. Applicability on the specific type of landslides is based on the literature review made by the author from various kinds of cases from different kind of journals that are related to the author research topic. Later. the various mitigation is then compiled with its respective landslide failure. The compilations are then used as a reference for the future mitigation measures so that effective measures and prevention can be carried out. As for the recommendation, the author suggests that more detailed study on this topic should be done to make it more effective and useful in the future for the landslide mitigation option. For the conclusion, the author manages to compile and tabulate different type of landslides into its respective mitigation.
