International Training Course on Heritage Impact Assessment

15-24 October 2012, Shanghai , China

Application Deadline: 1 June 2012

 

In recent years the UNESCO World Heritage Committee has examined a considerable number of State of Conservation Reports related to threats from various types of large-scale development activities to the World Heritage properties. These activities include infrastructure development, new buildings, urban renewal and changes to the land use some of which are insensitive or inappropriate. The Committee has also examined threats from excessive or inappropriate tourism. Many of these activities have had the potential to impact adversely on the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) including integrity and authenticity of the properties inscribed on the World Heritage List. In order to evaluate satisfactorily the potential impacts, the World Heritage Committee has suggested the State Parties concerned to conduct Heritage Impact Assessments. Impact assessment has been a tool used in evaluating impacts by other sectors widely and the time has come to adapt it to suit heritage sector. Meeting the demand of the Committee in particular and more generally considering the growing need for the professionals in the Heritage sector to equip with knowledge and skills on Heritage Impact Assessments, WHITRAP together with ICCROM propose to organize a training workshop in China.
