Abstract

By studying the causal factors for landslides in a small mountainous area of Manjiya County, this paper tries to contribute to the restricted knowledge on landslides in East Africa. After a brief introduction of the study area and the spatial distribution and characteristics of its landslides, the preconditions, preparatory and triggering causal factors for mass movement will be discussed with attention to their spatial variation
