The UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies to the World Heritage Committee, ICCROM, ICOMOS and IUCN are launching the first title within the World Heritage Resource Manuals series. It focuses on one specific approach to the principles, methodology and process for managing disaster risks at cultural and natural World Heritage properties.

So far, this manual, which has been developed through a project coordinated by ICCROM, exists in English and in French. The titles in this series are produced as PDF online documents which can be downloaded free of charge. There is no hard copy version of this manual.
