As a global non-governmental organization associated with UNESCO and working to promote the conservation, protection, use and enhancement of cultural heritage sites through creation of knowledge and advocacy, ICOMOS has been closely engaged with the topic of sustainable development in recent years, having held major scientific events and issued policy documents to highlight the vital role of cultural heritage within the sustainable development process.
ICOMOS partners with UCLG (United Cities and Local Governments), GPN (Global Planners Network), IFLA (International Federation of Landscape Architects) and Europa Nostra to advocate for inclusion of cultural and natural Heritage in the Ministerial Declaration of the UN High-Level Political Forum 2018 on the SDGs. The organizations have released a statement entitled “Is Heritage left behind in the HLPF Ministerial Declaration? Statement for Inclusion of Cultural and Natural Heritage with Reference to SDG 11 and Other Goals.”
ICOMOS is actively involved in the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), being held at UN Headquarters in New York City from 9-18 July 2018, where the annual global review of progress on the SDGs will take place.
