|| New Publication: Measuring Heritage Conservation Performance
2 July. ICCROM and the Centro de Estudos Avançados da Conservação Integrada (CECI), Brazil, are pleased to announce a new publication available for free download: Measuring Heritage Conservation Performance, proceedings from the 6th International Seminar on Urban Conservation which took place in Recife, Brazil in March 2011.
When ICCROM launched the LATAM programme for Latin America and the Caribbean in 2008, activities were to unfold around several priority areas set up as working groups chosen and led by institutions and professionals from the region. Among these was the working group on ‘measuring performance’, and what has emerged is that there are several initiatives taking place in different parts of the region on this very theme.
In 2011, CECI took the leadership in addressing this issue within the LATAM programme by organizing an international seminar. The call for papers attracted some 120 proposals from around the world, which further demonstrated that the concept of performance indicators is of great interest to many colleagues and institutions globally. For this reason, the volume is in English, however we are now working hard to produce summaries of each chapter in Spanish, so stay tuned for further updates!
In the meantime, if you would like to share your experiences or ideas on how to further develop this theme, please contact Silvio Zancheti at: ceci(at)ceci-br.org
