The UNESCO Land Subsidence International Initiative (LaSII) enhances the scientific understanding and technical knowledge required to identify and characterize hazards related to natural and anthropogenic land-level lowering.
LaSII promotes and facilitates the international exchange of information regarding the design, implementation and evaluation of risk assessments and mitigation measures, and the definition of resource-management strategies that support sustainable development in areas vulnerable to land-level lowering.
