During the field visit, photographs of the landslide, debris flow fan, dam, lakes, and severely affected areas were taken. This information was used together with satellite imagery to analyse the situation and develop recommendations for action to respond to the Jure landslide, as well as steps that should be taken to help reduce disaster risk in the future.
