Cultural Heritage, Climate Change and Disasters: Relevance, Challenges and Future Actions
During this online webinar, we will launch the report titled "Cultural heritage in the context of disasters and climate change: insights from the DCMS-AHRC Cultural Heritage and Climate Change Cohort" recently published by PRAXIS (University of Leeds) and the CRITICAL project (University of Edinburgh). The report presents the results of a series of workshops organised by the research teams between February and September 2022 and project-specific policy briefs prepared by the nine research projects of the AHRC/DCMS Cultural Heritage and Climate Change (CHCC) Cohort.

With this event, we will also promote knowledge exchange and shared learning on the complex interrelationships between cultural heritage, climate change and disasters between academic and non-academic stakeholders in the UK and the Global South, and foster further discussion and collaboration, particularly in terms of how to improve current heritage and climate change policies and practices. We will bring together representatives from the Cultural Heritage and Climate Change cohort with other interested parties such as members from funding bodies, policymakers, academics, practitioners and other stakeholders to stimulate a constructive discussion on this topic.

A roundtable with representatives of these key actors will stimulate a discussion around two main aspects:

1) the ways to improve current practices tackling cultural heritage management in the face of climate change and disaster impacts;
2) the role of international collaborations between academics, practitioners and research participants when approaching a variety of cultural heritage forms as well as differing approaches to the assessment of risk.

A 2-page policy brief will be prepared after the event by the PRAXIS team to include the lessons learned from this online event and PRAXIS participation at COP27.
