ABC Risk Management System

On 4 November at 3 pm CET (11 am UTC-3), ICCROM, the Ciência e Saúde para a Soberania e a Democracia, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz), the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) and Casa de Oswaldo Cruz will hold a virtual launch event for the ABC Risk Management System for Cultural Heritage.

Event speakers include:

  • José Luiz Pederzoli Jr (ICCROM)
  • Carla Coelho (COC/Fiocruz)
  • Marcos José Pinheiro (COC/Fiocruz)
  • Wagner Silva (COC/Fiocruz)
  • Irene Karsten (CCI)
  • Simon Lambert (CCI)
  • Stefan Michalski (CCI)

This system is the product of many years of working on the ABC Method – a risk management approach to the preservation of cultural heritage created by ICCROM and CCI. It follows in the footsteps of the 2017 ABC Method guidebook, written by ICCROM and CCI. The manual offers a comprehensive understanding of risk management applied to the preservation of heritage assets, whether collections, buildings or sites.

The launch event will be broadcast on Youtube and will have simultaneous English-Portuguese and Portuguese-English interpretation.
