Cultural and Natural Heritage are among the highest expressions of humanity. However, we assist to a sharp increase of disasters causing severe damage or loss of heritage worldwide. Countries affected by catastrophic events are usually caught unprepared, incapable to deploy mitigation and/or response measures.
-What does it take to be ready to protect heritage at risk?
-Which DRR policies currently in place are considered a good practice?
-Which Private Public Partnerships can responsible state agencies establish to ensure CNH protection?
These and several other questions should find answers within this session together with some options and proposals.
