In this paper we present a framework for analyzing the rainfall-induced landslide risk and demonstrate it with a case study of Lushan hot-spring district in Nantou County in central Taiwan. This framework consists of three parts: (1) an approach for determining the probability of landslide/slope failure, (2) a procedure for estimating the landslide-induced losses, and (3) a procedure for computing the total landslide risk. The emphasis of the paper is on the determination of the probability of landslide/slope failure. The proposed framework is further demonstrated through a sensitivity analysis to investigate the influence of various degrees of parameter uncertainty.
