If I understood correctly you are interested to link Culture with disasters. Here is response: Cultural Heritage is fundamental to the identityof the local communities and is an integral feature of every cultural landscape. A considerable wealth of experience exists in protecting heritage and italso makes a direct and significant contribution to sustainable developmentacross its economic, social and environmental dimensions. Cultural heritage isalso a powerful asset for inclusive economic development, by attractinginvestments and promoting green, local and stable economic activities such as artsin general and tourism, conservation, construction, food production,traditional healing and, the production of crafts of all kinds in particular.Heritage is at risk due to disasters, conflict, climate change and lots ofother factors. At the same time, cultural heritage is increasingly recognizedas a driver of resilience that can support efforts to reduce disaster risksmore broadly . Each year disasters caused by natural and human-inducedhazards result in the destruction of countless historical properties, museumsand archives that hold the history of humanity within their walls. Thesafeguarding of cultural heritage is important and must be ensured for futuregenerations, not only because it is a source of the cultural identity of alocal community, but also because cultural heritage is a driving force of theeconomy. Therefore the paper aims at assessing the disaster vulnerability ofheritage monuments in Delhi and Jaipur. Both the cities are endowed with richcultural past which are showcased in form of existing forts and monuments. Theassessment is expected to contribute towards preservation and conservation ofmonuments against disasters.
