STrengthening Resilience of Cultural Heritage at risk in a changing environment trough NETworking and transnational cooperation


STRenCHNET aims at improving the capacities of policy makers, public authorities, private sector and social players forSTrengthening Resilience of Cultural Heritage at risk in a changing environment trough NETworking and transnational cooperation and coordination action aiming at exploiting output and results from targeted European Projects specifically dedicated to this topic.The main projects capitalised are the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects ProteCHt2save, RUINS and HiCAPS, the H2020 projects Heracles and SHELTER and the JPI PROTHEGO. WebGIS tools for support the relevant stakeholders in the decision making process for safeguarding cultural heritage at risk in changing climate. The tools will include risk assessment on cultural heritage due to flash flood, windstorm and landslides as well as heavy rain, floods in large basins and fire due to drought. They will tackel the protection of additional cultural categories, such as cultural landscapes, historic parks, archaeological sites and small ruined villages in mountain and coastal areas, by capitalizing the outputs on management models for the preservation of heritage. And they will apply satellite data and services from the Copernicus programme, thus allowing to create a platform for setting up early warning systems specifically addressed to cultural heritage protection. In addition, the combination of real and near real time data from earth observation with outputs from climate models will guarantee short and long term risk assessment. The implementation of the developed sustainable risk management strategies (preparedness, emergency, recovery) will take place at selected pilot sites. This ensures the testing of the drafted sustainable risk management strategies and developed tools for targeting resilience building measures.
