The 2nd Training Workshop on Disaster Risk Management for Cultural Heritage in Southeast Asia (Online)

“Understanding People, Nature, Culture: Heritage Management for Building Resilience of Living Traditional Settlements”

This is the second training workshop organized by SEAMEO-SPAFA, ICCROM and R-DMUCH for encouraging the basics of the heritage management by adopting a place-based approach for understanding the natural setting, people involved and the cultural features. The first training workshop delivered in Brunei Darussalam with the theme of “School-based Approach in Promoting Disaster Risk Mitigation for Cultural Heritage”, but the second workshop is delivered via online because of the COVID-19 pandemic does not allow us to travel to Brunei. 

For the purpose of integrating disaster risk management with the overall heritage management system by adopting appropriate adaptation, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery measures on Kampong Ayer and the other case study areas by participants, we contribute to this training workshop as the ITC`s follow up activity. Hatthaya Siriphatthanakun (SEAMEO SPAFA/a former participant of ITC 2013) and Rohit Jigyasu (ICCROM/the former UNESCO Chair holder professor of ITC) are the main course coordinators and Takeyuki Okubo and Dowon Kim are the resource persons who conduct the lectures and exercises during the workshop.
