Natural disasters associated with land mass movements in Brazil have become more frequent in recent years, with significant human loss and material damage. An alternative to reduce such natural disasters will occur when landslides-susceptible areas are mapped, with restrictions or conditions for the occupation of areas with natural fragility to landslide occurrences. Current analysis determines the slopes´ potential degree for the occurrence of landslide susceptibility in the Caeté catchment, municipality of Alfredo Wagner, in the highlands of the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. The Shallow Stability model (SHALSTAB) identified the slopes´ instability index by hydrological factors, hillside stability and soil. Results revealed areas with high degree of hillside instability and the need for preventive and relieving actions. In fact, areas with very high potential fragility susceptible to the occurrence of mass movement in the Caeté catchment are more than 30% of the basin´s total area.
