Damage and Risk Assessment: Report to promote risk-informed cultural heritage first aid actions in Ukraine

Almost a year into the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, all types of heritage across Ukraine are at risk. Recognizing the urgent need to protect and safeguard cultural heritage in Ukraine, ICCROM’s First Aid and Resilience for Cultural Heritage in Times of Crisis Programme (FAR), in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, Maidan Museum and Heritage Emergency Rescue Initiative (HERI), has trained on-the-ground teams to carry out systematic, on-site damage and risk assessments for all types of heritage, which is enabled by a mobile and web-based application. Hosted on a secure server, the multi-lingual app has customized damage and risk assessment forms for movable, immovable and intangible heritage in Ukraine and can be used online and offline.

This report details damage and risk assessments performed at four sites in Ukraine.
