Impact assessment is an approach and methodology that can promote better evidence-based decision-making in advance of planning for change at or near World Heritage properties. The three Advisory Bodies (ICCROM, ICOMOS and IUCN) have been collaborating, in partnership with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA), on the elaboration of a new joint World Heritage Impact Assessment (WHIA) Guidance document within the framework of the ICCROM-IUCN World Heritage Leadership Programme.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to confront critical questions and decisions concerning our future and the role of cultural heritage in it. Looking ahead, the post COVID-19 phase provides an opportunity to ‘build back better’ by rethinking and further strengthening the role of heritage in sustainable development, in line with the UN 2030 agenda. Nevertheless, this will require the heritage sector to reconsider its position and proactively take concrete steps to advance social, environmental, and economic sustainability. The webinar will address this issue, with particular focus on museums and their collections.

COVID-19 is not the first pandemic in history, demonstrating that humanity is resilient enough to survive health crises, among other natural and/or human-induced hazards on a global scale. The examples of Egypt, Guatemala and Nigeria will be used to address the question of how traditional knowledge, as a cultural tool, is vital to closing gaps in state-led pandemic responses, to building resilience in post-pandemic recovery, and addressing the challenges and possible ways to mainstream traditional knowledge, response and recovery strategies and plans.

This webinar will address the issue of well-being. With a panel of speakers drawn from economics, health, sociology and heritage conservation, we will explore what well-being is, why it’s important, and how through reframing the ways in which heritage is recognised, used and cared for in terms of well-being, heritage can do more to promote equity, sustainability and enjoyment of life.

How can we access and keep in touch with cultural heritage during a pandemic? How can we be inspired by cultural heritage to develop our own art and craft activities?

How can we build emotional resilience amidst a crisis, such as the pandemic we are experiencing now, when everything familiar seems to fall apart? This webinar brings reflections on the need for psycho-social support for affected artists, cultural heritage bearers and heritage professionals. At the same time, based on real life experiences, it brings vital insights on how heritage itself can help to overcome the sense of loss and displacement caused by a disaster. A multidisciplinary group of historians, psychologists, humanitarian aid specialists and cultural heritage professionals will offer strategies for stress management, coping capacities, as well as peer-to-peer support.

The concept of resilience has gained significant traction in past few years and applied to various fields. However, there is general lack of clarity about this term, often misused as a jargon. Therefore, while on one hand, we need to understand the term itself, we should also explore it in relation to heritage, especially as we go through COVID pandemic and emerge from it. The objective of this webinar is to reflect on the symbiotic relationship between heritage and resilience; for building resilience of heritage on one hand and exploring how heritage can contribute towards resilience on the other hand. Through various case examples, a multidisciplinary group of panellists will bring forward multiple perspectives on heritage resilience from 'cultural, 'natural', ‘social’, 'economic' and disaster risk’ dimensions. The presentations will further explore the implication of resilience thinking on heritage conservation and management practices.

COVID-19, lockdowns, movement restrictions have brought our daily lives to a standstill in almost every country in the world. It has hugely impacted large economies, but it has disproportionately affected the livelihoods of the most marginalised people. Cultural bearers, artisans, traditional livelihoods, and many others whose survival and well-being are dependent on the practices of cultural heritage are among those who are worst affected. In order to save lives and cultural heritage in crises, a collaboration needs to be forged between humanitarian aid and cultural sectors. This webinar will bring reflections and learnings from the lens of a Humanitarian Aid Worker and Cultural First Aider, on how we can reach, understand, connect and work better with communities and cultures in crises.

COVID 19 Pandemic has forced abrupt closure of cultural heritage sites and institutions, thereby not only depriving people the opportunity to enjoy and experience their heritage but also causing huge losses in the revenues and disrupting the livelihoods of many people who are directly and directly dependent on cultural heritage for their subsistence. In the post lockdown period, these heritage places are slowly opening up in the ‘new normal’ that is determined by norms aimed at preventing the spread of this highly contagious infection. In this situation, it is important to ask, what measures are to be taken when reopening a heritage site or a cultural institution such as a museum? How do we adapt them to the new requirements such as social distancing and need for quarantine places and shelters for the homeless? The webinar will discuss all these challenges through examples from Honduras, United States and India. Some of the questions that will be discussed are based on the testing of ICCROM’s knowledge tools in Honduras and USA.
