SESSION 08: Prevention and conservation in World Heritage Sites

In recent times, the vulnerability of cultural heritage as a result of both natural and man-made threats has been demonstrated. The consequences of the loss of cultural heritage, in all its expressions, has a strong impact on the history and traditions of peoples and communities, affecting their normal social and economic development. In this scenario, it is essential to install and strengthen capacities for disaster-risk management among all the stakeholders, in order to reduce vulnerability to potential threats. In this sense, investing in prevention through programs, regulations or projects should be a priority task to contribute to the preservation of heritage and its associated communities.
