5) Survey: Cultural Heritage and the
Impacts of Climate Change
REMINDER - Completed Questionnaires due 30th September
Some questionnaire s have already been returned but we are hoping for
a lot more!!!
Cultural Heritage and the Impacts of Climate Change
Australia ICOMOS Survey of heritage research and investigations related
to Climate Change and Cultural Heritage
Recently in conjunction with the Extreme Heritage Conference, Australia
ICOMOS held a symposium and a public forum on Heritage and Climate
Change. In the course of organizing these events it became obvious that
there were no concerted programs of research and or assessment being
undertaken by research institutions or governments into this issue.
However it seems that there was a range of projects being undertaken by
individuals and organizations that had relevance.
Australia ICOMOS is keen to assess Australias level of preparedness in
relation to this issue and develop a role in promoting effective research
and investigation into both the potential impacts of Climate Change on
our cultural heritage and their remediation. We have developed a very
brief questionnaire as a first step in collating data on the range of
projects being undertaken which are directly or indirectly relevant to
the identification, assessment or mitigation of the impact of climate
change on cultural heritage. Ultimately we would like to collate data on
this topic data relevant to heritage conservation disciplines, on studies
and research relevant to the likely impact of global climate change on
This survey is being co-ordinated by Susan McIntyre-Tamwoy. All members
of Australia ICOMOS will soon receive a copy of the survey and it is
hoped that you will fill it out and return it promptly (by 30th September
would be appreciated!!!). It will only take about 5-10mins of your time.
In addition it would be appreciated if you could circulate the
questionnaire to any one that you think might be interested or who has
been involved in relevant work. Completed questionnaires can be forwarded
to Susan at fax 0740421380 or scannned and emailed to
