ICOMOS is pleased to present its first Heritage @ Risk report. Its aim is to identify threatened heritage places, monuments and sites, present typical case studies and trends, and share suggestions for solving individual or global threats to our cultural heritage.
The Heritage @ Risk program was endorsed by ICOMOS members at the General Assembly in Mexico in 1999. An invitation was made to all ICOMOS National Committees, International Scientific Committees and ICOMOS' world-wide professional network, to provide short reports outlining risks in their country or area of expertise including case studies. These reports are now all available on this Web-site.
ICOMOS has analysed this wide variety of reports and presents an overview of Trends, Threats and Risks to Heritage with some suggestions to counteract these threats in the Taskforce Report available on this Web-site. More information and solutions are welcome - sharing such ideas may initiate fresh approaches.
This ICOMOS H@R! first world report complements other national and international initiatives to preserve our cultural heritage places, monuments and sites. Links are provided to these other programs or websites.
ICOMOS looks forward to your ongoing involvement in this initiative - a call for further reports will be placed on this Web-site in 2001
