Workshop on the impact of climate change on cultural heritage

From: Joel Taylor <joeltayloronline>
Date: Thursday, November 16, 2006
The international workshop 'Climate change vulnerability: Maps and
guidance for cultural heritage protection' will present the findings
of the EC 6th framework project 'Noah's Ark: Global Climate Change
Impact of the Built Heritage and Cultural Landscapes'
(SSPI-CT-2003-501837).

The NOAH's ARK project <URL:http://noahsark.isac.cnr.it/> has
determined the most critical risks to the built cultural heritage by
researching, predicting and describing the effects of climate change
on Europe's built cultural heritage over the next 100 years. It has
developed adaptation strategies for cultural landscapes and
materials through guidelines and tools, including web-based Climate
Risk Maps and a Vulnerability Atlas to assess the threats of climate
change. An important part of this project has been developing policy
from this research.

This workshop will reveal new information about the impact of
climate change on cultural heritage, reveal new tools and maps for
assessing climate change impact, recommend new adaptation strategies
for the historic environment, demonstrate web-based applications,
and discuss how European policy can be developed for climate change
adaptation.

The workshop will take place on 18-19 January 2007 in London.
