This new publication by ICOMOS and ICCROM, 'Guidance on Post-Disaster and Post-Conflict Recovery and Reconstruction for Heritage Places of Cultural Significance and World Heritage Cultural Properties' is intended for experts working in heritage conservation and provides a framework through which the recovery of heritage places can be supported and harnessed in coming to terms with and overcoming the trauma associated with destruction and loss.
International Day of Monuments and Sites 2024: Disasters & Conflicts Through the Lens of the Venice Charter
At the General Assembly 2023 in Sydney, the theme of “Disaster and Conflict Resilient Heritage - Preparedness, Response and Recovery” was chosen as the theme for the Triennial Scientific Plan 2024-2027. As ICOMOS develops a roadmap for capacity building for “disaster and conflict resilient heritage” for its members and the wider heritage community and gets ready to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Venice Charter (31 May 2024), we look back on our shared inheritance from this very charter, and ahead as we ask ourselves what the pragmatic needs of heritage practice are today.
ICOMOS and ICCROM, through its Regional Office in Sharjah (ICCROM-Sharjah, U.A.E.) have officially released a new publication gathering Arabic translations of international charters and declarations related to preserving and restoring cultural heritage. The book, titled International Charters for the Conservation and Restoration of Monuments and Historical Sites, is an essential text for practitioners, researchers and legislators who seek a comprehensive overview of heritage conservation texts at the international level.

Following ICOMOS’ appeal on 17 October, and in the face of the increasingly distressing developments over the last months, ICOMOS again expresses its sadness and horror at the unacceptable and unconscionable price being paid by civilians, in particular children, and at the destruction of cultural, archaeological and living heritage, since the present round of this conflict began over two months ago.
