【2023 International Forum on Disaster Risk Management for Cultural Heritage】 英文版直播 Day 2


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 Agenda serves as the United Nations' blueprint for a sustainable future. In United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)'s 2019 report "Culture: 2030 Indicator," "Expenditure on Heritage" is listed as the top thematic indicator. Both UNESCO and the Blue Shield International (BSI) - a prominent protection group in the heritage sector - have invested resources in exploring risk management for hazards, whether human-made or natural.
Recent disasters, such as the war in Ukraine, floods in Venice, monsoons in Thailand, and fires at Notre Dame in Paris and Shurijo Castle in Okinawa, have highlighted the pressing need for swift risk mitigation, proactive protection, risk preparedness, and cross-border partnerships. In response, we have organized this forum to shed light on cultural heritage disaster risk management. BSI and its four organization founder members - International Council of Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), International Council of Museums (ICOM), International Council on Archives (ICA), International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions(IFLA)–along with Taiwan experts will share their experiences and insights. The forum aims to contribute to worldwide heritage risk management, post-disaster rescue, and recovery, while facilitating global collaboration on heritage protection.
