Abstract

The year 2006 represented the beginning of a decade in which several extreme weather events occurred (2006, 2014 and 2016 yr.), in terms of heavy and prolonged rainfalls, that have caused (re)activation of numerous landslides and other terrain instabilities across Serbia (except northern Serbia - Vojvodina). Landslide processes were expressed in central, south eastern and western parts of the Republic of Serbia. Beside damages in urbanized areas, the biggest problems were recorded on roads in mentioned parts of the country, where neighboured settlements often were cut off from each other due to activation of big landslides, while on the state roads - landslides often occurred in parts of road base or slopes above roads. By the Government Public Investment Management Office, during 2016th, 32 landslides were stabilized across the country, while during the first quarter of 2017th on 6 more landslides stabilisation measures were conducted. In this paper, basic data about stabilized landslides is shown, with short reviews on project design process and stabilization measures, characteristic and most often methods of terrain stabilisation with following dynamics and stabilisation costs for various landslides across the country. Funds for stabilisation measures during 2016th were provided from The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF), while funds for stabilisation of 2017th landslide occurrences were provided from the budgetary reserve of the Republic of Serbia.
