The slope failure risk assessment of a particular area can be prepared by considering the data available. Many attempts have been made to classify the risk where evaluations are made in rating or in grading the slopes based on their characteristics and erosion problems. The assessments were done for geo-hazard such as erosion and landslide recognized in planning and guidance. Most of the hazard risk analyses require detailed knowledge of the geo- environmental predisposition factors and initial events that led to failure. The results of these analyses consist of identification and mapping of all erosion induced landslide phenomenon and are often translated in the form of maps, which is the fundamental step of the hazard assessment. The ranking of susceptibility areas and the delineation of probable failure areas are among essential features relevant to the production of these maps. In this study, Landslide Susceptibility Modelling was developed by taking into consideration all the landslide susceptibility factors in Cameron Highlands. The landslide susceptibility map was produced based on the historical records of a landslide in that area for 20 years and the frequency ratio model was developed using map-overlaying techniques. The susceptibility map offers substantial benefits as a regional-scale tool over earlier susceptibility maps and Cameron Highland landslide- susceptible terrain zoning. The susceptibility map has the advantage of assisting with the implementation of suitable efforts to prevent landslides.
