Climate change is increasing the number of disasters and their devastating impacts on lives, properties, livelihoods and cultural heritage. The likelihood of increased weather extremes such as heavy downpours, heat waves, and strong hurricanes and cyclones therefore gives great concern that the number or scale of weather-related disasters will also increase putting heritage at greater risk than ever before. Moreover, greater variability in temperature and precipitation due to climate change is also posing challenges for the conservation of historic built fabric. This necessitates transformative change through bold decisions for transition to a carbon neutral and resilient world that can sustain heritage for future generations, and at the same time considering radical changes in conservation and management practices to adapt to changing environmental context. The webinar aims at discussing specific actions that we must take at national and site levels to enable such a change.
