International conference “Flood Protection for Historic Sites”, June 13 – 14, 2014 in Dresden, Germany


University in Dresden, under the patronage of the Saxon Minister of the Interior and in association with the German National Committee of ICOMOS.
Increasingly frequent disasters involving high water have led to efforts in many parts of the world to enhance flood protection. Although the extensive structural measures that are often undertaken also protect historic sites, at times these very measures can impair a site’s special values. Not enough attention has been given in the past to such adverse effects. This interdisciplinary colloquium will discuss relevant experiences from various contexts and professional perspectives. Further information is to be found in the program and on the following website:

World Heritage: New resources

The World Heritage Centre has made available new tools and documents: 

"Managing Cultural World Heritage" reference manual
This manual provides guidance for States Parties and all those involved in the care of World Heritage cultural properties on how to comply with the requirements of the World Heritage Convention. It also aims to help States Parties to ensure that heritage has a dynamic role in society and harnesses, but also delivers to others, the mutual benefits that such a role can create.
Free download from : http://whc.unesco.org/en/news/1078/
"Celebrating 40 years of the World Heritage Convention"
This electronic publication provides the vivid record of the three-day landmark event, which was organized jointly by the Government of Japan and UNESCO World Heritage Centre, in Kyoto, Japan, 6-8 November 2012. During the Closing Event, challenges the Convention faced in its early years as well as today's key issues in the World Heritage community, were discussed.

And the new database, "State of Conservation of World Heritage properties".
State of Conservation (SOC): The very significant number of reports prepared by the UNESCO Secretariat and the Advisory Bodies to the World Heritage Committee represents an exceptional and extensive documentation on various conservation issues. It is one of the most comprehensive monitoring systems of any international conventions, through a global network of sites.
