Project Details


This document presents the project "Functions for estimating vulnerability due to water shortages due to landslides and avalanches: Pilot micro-basin case of southwest Antiqueño", a joint project between the research groups GICI, GICAMH and GINIF of the University of Medellín, ISAII of the Polytechnic Colombian Jaime Isaza Cadavid, and the CORANTIOQUIA Autonomous Corporation. The project addresses the issue of water resources, one of the most important and present issues on international agendas, and which, according to the UN World Program for the Assessment of Water Resources, is a shared responsibility, which plays a fundamental role in the development of communities; even more so in times when natural disasters have a greater impact on infrastructure and the community, due to the excessive exposure and vulnerability of the elements at risk in rural areas, and the increase in the frequency and severity of natural phenomena, This trend is likely to continue even more markedly due to climate change. Regarding the environmental issue, extreme weather events are expected to be more common and, with them, dangerous natural phenomena such as floods, torrential floods or landslides that can trigger a significant or devastating impact on many communities, which regardless of their degree of development, are vulnerable, among other things, to water shortages.


Determine curves for estimating the vulnerability of watersheds and surrounding communities due to mass movements in rural areas in tropical mountain areas.
