Dr. Benedetta Dini, an engineering geologist, and a geomorphologist spoke about the pilot project in Upper Bhotekoshi, Nepal on the development of smart boulders using innovative approaches to monitor and observe boulder movement occurring in landslide-prone areas. She emphasized how such an approach is useful in creating robust early warning systems in disaster management and risk reduction in the future.
