  1. Task Force 2a: Technical guidelines – To work with landslide committees within member societies and other affiliated bodies to create a library of national landslide guidelines within the ISSMGE library
  2. Task Force 2b: Technical recommendations for the selection of shear strength parameters for slope stability analyses – To create recommendations, based on soil mechanics theory, for use in slope stability analyses
  3. Task Force 2c --> 2n. Opportunity for other technical recommendations to be championed by members of the TC

To assist with technical programs of international and regional conferences organised by the ISSMGE

  1. Task Force 3a Conferences. To assist the ICSMGE / ECSMGE  organising committees in the peer review for manuscripts submitted under the slope stability topic.
  2. Task Force 3b: Workshops. To develop a plan for TC208 activities at ICSMGE & regional ISSMGE (e.g. ECSMGE) conferences

To assist with industry and overlapping organisations within the international slope stability community

  1. Task Force 4a: To work in cooperation with JTC1 and offer help in the organisation of the International Symposium on Landslides, JTC1 workshops, and other initiatives. To identify other organisations with overlapping interests in slope stability or education to promote the work of the TC
