The Culture/Cultural Heritage and Climate Change
Knowledge Base

a collection of data and documents on Culture/Cultural Heritage and Climate Change in the urban context

This knowledge base was designed by the Fondazione Scuola dei beni e delle attività culturali, together with the Ministry of Culture and a dedicated experts’ team, as one of the outputs of the activities carried out for the implementation of Action 9 “Observatory on Culture/Cultural Heritage and climate change in the urban framework” as planned in the Final Action Plan of the Partnership on Culture/Cultural Heritage of the Urban Agenda for the EU.

The collected data

The data collected during the research have been organised into a relational database made of 4 tables: “Policies”, “Programmes”, “Projects” and “Actors”. Each table is accessible individually and provides links with the other tables.
All the items collected – except for the “Actors” – have been classified according to four categories: High Ambition, Adaptation, Mitigation, Loss&Damage.
These categories derive from the 2019 ICOMOS report “The Future of Our Pasts: Engaging Cultural Heritage in Climate Action”, which condensed into four categories referred to Culture/Cultural Heritage the contents of the Paris Agreement, which remains the most relevant multilateral policy framework for tackling causes and effects of climate change and represents a global accord on combating climate change and accelerating and intensifying climate action.
The database is devised to be implementable. It aims to function as a dissemination space for players in the sector, as it records any relevant document the community will indicate.
