Archaeology Seminar Series : Reducing Risks to Heritage in Times of Crisis Other events...
To communities heavily impacted by natural and man-made hazard induced events, cultural heritage provides a sense of identity and continuity in the aftermath of a disaster. Often a source of revenue and livelihood for communities, cultural heritage and its associated industries are vulnerable to hazard events, however, is often unaddressed until the latter stages of emergency response, impacting the effectiveness of recovery initiatives amongst affected communities. First Aid to Cultural Heritage in Times of Crisis (FAC), aims to identify areas of joint programming between culture and humanitarian sectors, integrating the protection of cultural heritage into emergency response procedures in cooperation and coordination with other mainstream emergency response actors. Preparing and providing emergency actors and local communities with the ability to assess risks to cultural heritage and reduce the impact of hazard-induced events, FAC works to ensure that affected communities can become active contributors in their own cultural recovery.
