Disaster Risk Management for Cultural Heritage 

26 – 27 March 2019

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi

Aim

A broad aim of the course is to explore approaches and practices for Heritage protection before, during and after a disaster.

Content

Cultural heritage is increasingly exposed to disasters caused by natural and human induced hazards. Recent examples include the floods in Kerala, August 2018, or the fire at the Brazil Museum, Rio, in September 2018 or the Bali volcano in Indonasia, in November 2017 or the earthquakes in Kathmandu, Nepal, in April 2015. With these existing experiences of disasters this course recognises the increasing importance for having a risk preparedness. Risk-preparedness is identified as a critical part for our cultural environments. Risk analysis and mitigation for cultural sites have become more essential in order to ensure optimal conditions for extending their life. This course will be a valuable addition for participants to learn these long-standing efforts, and soon become a major tool to heighten risk-preparedness for all sites of cultural heritage importance.  The experience in this field that are still scattered in India will be explained, these include; risk assessment, the possibilities and limitations of technical adaptation and retrofitting of historic buildings to withstand disasters and, in this context, and ethical aspects of possible conflicts between the urgent protection of people and the protection of cultural property.  

“World Heritage properties and heritage sites in general are exposed to the impacts of natural and man-triggered catastrophic events, which threaten their integrity and may compromise their value. The loss or deterioration of these outstanding properties has severely negative impacts on local and national communities, both because of their cultural importance, and because of their socio-economic value”.
