ICOMOS is a non-governmental international organisation dedicated to the conservation of the world's monuments and sites.
On 6 February 2023, two major earthquakes and their aftershocks struck Syria and Turkey.
ICOMOS expresses its condolences and sadness at the rapidly rising death toll and numbers of missing and injured, as well as the devastation inflicted on populations, in part already heavily tested by war in Syria, in difficult winter conditions. ICOMOS offers its assistance.

ICOMOS is issuing a worldwide Heritage Alert, our most consequential expressional of concern, to amplify awareness of the threat to the Philadelphia Police Administration Building and draw urgent attention to the imminent risk of loss of the internationally significant "Roundhouse" precast concrete building designed by the Geddes Brecher Qualls and Cunningham firm, engineer August Komendant and Eastern Schokbeton engineers.
