ICOMOS is pleased to share the results of an exciting project focusing on building capacities and assessing the climate vulnerability of African UNESCO World Heritage properties. The Values-based Climate Change Risk Assessment: Piloting the Climate Vulnerability Index for Cultural Heritage in Africa (CVI-Africa) project was piloted by a global team of institutions in Africa and the United Kingdom, including ICOMOS, Queen’s University Belfast, The University of Highlands and Islands, Historic Environment Scotland and the African World Heritage Fund.
With over 1100 sites inscribed to date in more than 150 countries, representing the greatest natural and cultural treasures of humanity, the success of the World Heritage List goes far beyond the initial ambition of its founders. Beyond the sites inscribed, the Convention has proven to be an extraordinarily powerful tool to serve the cause of heritage and strengthen its protection.
ICOMOS is launching the ICOMOS Culture-Nature Prize, which will be awarded to support the most promising Culture-Nature initiatives undertaken by our members.
This year, the ICOMOS Advisory Committee will organise its Scientific Symposium in Bangkok, Thailand on 29 and 30 October 2022 on the theme "Religious Heritage: Celebrating and conserving places of religious and ritual significance in a global world and in changing climates".
On 20 May 2022, the Macedonian translation of the ICOMOS document "European Quality Principles for EU-funded Interventions with Potential Impact upon Cultural Heritage" was promoted at the Europe House in Skopje, in the presence of government officials, diplomats, conservation experts and cultural heritage enthusiasts.
Join us on 3 and 4 June for two sessions of panel discussions, the first online ICOMOS University Forum.

We thank ICOMOS Spain for the Spanish translation and Marcela Arguedas, ICOMOS Costa-Rica President, for the proofing of the report.
