Disaster risk management of cultural heritage in urban areas: a training guide

This is a training guide for conducting courses on disaster risk management for cultural heritage in urban areas.

The guide was developed within the framework of the International Training Course on Disaster Risk Management of Cultural Heritage. This course has been organised in cooperation with the World Heritage Centre and the Division of Cultural Heritage at UNESCO, ICCROM, ICOMOS, and Agency for Cultural Affairs as well as other relevant institutions of the government of Japan. However due the limited resources, only 8-10 applicants are trained annually through this course. Considering the increasing need for capacity building in this area, it is important that the vast body of experience from this course available in the forms of its academic content, pedagogy as well organisation and methodology is communicated to a global audience. It is essential that similar courses are organised by institutions/organisations in other regions of the world.

The publication covers the following DRR subjects:

  • Risk Assessment
  • Prevention and Mitigation
  • Emergency Preparedness and Response
  • Recovery and Rehabilitation
  • Integrating Disaster Risk Management into overall Planning and Management
