SESSION 05: Nature-culture approaches to disasters prevention and recovery

In the last few years, cultural heritage and nature-based solutions are increasingly being integrated into disaster risk management strategies and climate change mitigation and adaptation planning. However, the interconnections between natural and cultural heritage are not sufficiently explored and used for disaster risk prevention and post-disaster recovery strategies. In light of the increasing hazards threatening World Heritage, this session explores the opportunities that nature-culture approaches could bring for analyzing heritage places and increase their resilience by planning disasters prevention and recovery in cultural landscapes, urban areas and natural protected areas.
