Abstract

Numerous landslides due to torrential rain have frequently occurred in the urban fringe of many cities in recent years. To protect residents from a landslide, there is a need that those living in landslide danger zones migrate to safer areas. In this study, we examined the financial feasibility of a scheme that enables residents in landslide danger zones to migrate to safe residential areas. The case study of the Kyushu region indicated that relocation for disaster adaptation is financially feasible for 20%of landslide danger zones in the region.
