Turkey is heavily exposed to natural hazards such as earthquakes, landslides and floods. The total loss caused by landslides in terms of affected buildings, in a period of 35 years between 1959 and 1994, constitutes 27% of the entire loss from all natural hazards and is second after earthquakes. There are no other available data on either direct or indirect losses due to landslides on a national scale.
