Naoko Kobayashi (Director Pac Asia Regional Center) and Christiane Baryla (Director IFLA PAC Strategic Program) will give a presentation at Cultural Heritage and Disaster Risk Reduction International Conference, November 18-20, 2013, Bangkok, Thailand.
The Conference is intended to provide updated clear information on the link between climate change and cultural heritage as well as practical steps that can be taken to alleviate negative impacts. In addition, while it is acknowledged that climate change is a major issue that impacts negatively on the environment and has subsequent consequences in relation to increased flooding, drought, rising temperatures, energy supplies, food supplies, social structures including migration, lack of resources leading to increased conflict, poverty, and other social ills; rarely is the impact of climate change on cultural heritage- both tangible and intangible- addressed.
