Description:

This first work package aims to investigate skills and competence requirements in the environmental risk assessment (e.g. seismic and hydrogeological risks) mitigation strategies on Cultural Heritage assets (e.g. buildings, urban centres, landscapes) in compliance with the needs of the conservation policies adopted by each Partner Country and with international rules and policies (e.g. UNESCO, ICOMOS, etc.). Skills and competences will be assessed within a multi-level approach to capacity building.

As first, it is needed to assess Cultural Heritage conservation possibilities against environmental risks in order to:

  • identify and involve stakeholders;

  • understand existing local policies concerning with Cultural Heritage conservation, environmental risks assessment, climate change, and sustainability;

  • understand existing local policies for environmental control, climate change mitigation and adaptation;

  • assess the existing, planned and future political actions on Cultural Heritage conservation;

  • assess existing local and international plans for financing Cultural Heritage conservation, valorisation, and management:

  • assess regulations and standards;

  • review and assess major international programs and goals from international institutions in the field of Cultural Heritage risk assessment, monitoring, conservation, and valorisation.

To this end, local academic partners, local Authorities, industrial stakeholders, and international institutions (e.g. World Bank, UNESCO, Aga Khan Foundation, etc.) will be invited to join a workshop (the Strategy Forum Workshop) designed in the framework of the project. The role of Associate Partners (UNESCO Office in Tashkent and Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Uzbekistan) will be of prominent importance in this WP.


The ultimate goal of this WP is to deliver a document able to identify the overall approach and focal areas of capacity building in Cultural Heritage risk assessment, monitoring, reduction, conservation, valorisation, and management. This document will be defined in the framework of the Strategy Forum Workshop, an international, open workshop organized in the framework of the project.


The resulting document, the Strategic Education Agenda in Cultural Heritage environmental risk protection, will be based on a multi-level approach.


A multi-level approach to capacity building includes: the identification of diversified targets (i.e., individuals, organizations, and governments), skills (i.e. link between skills and labour needs); a life-cycle perspective and comprehensive approach (i.e. technological capacities, human, scientific, organizational, and institutional capabilities); a national and regional perspective (i.e. national priorities and regional coordination); use of a mix of teaching tools (i.e. traditional or participative education, and learning by doing).

 

Tasks:

Task 1.1 Broadening participation in capacity building for Cultural Heritage protection

This task includes the identification and involvement of stakeholders for capacity building in Environmental risk assessment and mitigation for International, National and Regional Cultural Heritage assets. Following the multi-level approach, a variety of local, national, and international stakeholders will be involved working within technical, scientific, organizational, institutional, human, educational areas. The involvement of Associate Partners such as UNESCO Office in Tashkent and Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Uzbekistan will ensure a correct comprehension of the real needs.

 

Task 1.2 Organization and implementation of a Strategy Forum Workshop

This task includes first the definition of focal areas to promote capacity building in Cultural Heritage environmental risk assessment (e.g., resources, technology, infrastructure, environment and policy, financing, economic and social impacts). The identification of focal areas will be carried out by the projects’ partners and stakeholders identified in Task 1.1. Basing on the definition of focal areas, the agenda of the Strategy Forum Workshop will be prepared including the identification and invitation of keynote speakers, speakers, and chairwomen/men. Keynote speakers will prepare a position paper in the key focal areas in order to stimulate a discussion and provide a background for further elaborations. The Strategy Forum Workshop will be held in Tashkent.

 

Task 1.3 Preparation of the ERAMCA Strategic Education Agenda

By considering the prepared position papers and debriefing of the Strategy Forum Workshop, a Strategic Education Agenda will be prepared that sets the assessment of skills and competences requirements, the overall approach to capacity building for Cultural Heritage environmental risk assessment and conservation strategies. The Agenda addresses an action plan for capacity building on Cultural Heritage protection in Central Asia.
