The paper reports on Saint Lucia’s success in addressing landslide hazards in urban communities as a result of the innovative and solution-oriented engagement of community members, landslide researchers, and government practitioners and policy-makers. The Management of Slope Stability in Communities (MoSSaiC) approach was established by researchers from the University of Bristol committed to providing a community-based and scientific approach for delivering landslide hazard reduction measures on the ground. Following a successful pilot study in 2004, the government of Saint Lucia funded MoSSaiC projects in five vulnerable communities in which the community members became the lead project managers to reduce their landslide risk.
