Rising Seas and Storm Surges: Climate Change

7 December، 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Rising Seas and Storm Surges: Climate Change. Among the planet’s most dynamic and unstable habitats are coastal zones. Several of our most beloved historical landmarks are among them as well. The biggest and most complicated problem that coastal historic sites have ever faced is mitigating the effects of climate change, which range from increasing sea levels to coastal erosion.

Although these difficulties are remarkable, they are not exclusive. For millions of years, coastal processes have molded populations and shorelines worldwide. The individuals and places that encounter similar difficulties might strengthen their capacity for adaptation, learning, and resilience-building by exchanging experiences and knowledge.

This World Monuments Fund (WMF) event will explore the concepts and instruments that can be created to direct the future of coastal heritage worldwide, from Kilwa Kisiwani in Tanzania to New York City, USA. These include building sea defenses, citizen science programs, digital storytelling, and more.

Rob Woodside, the director of conservation and estates at English Heritage, Vanessa Keith, a registered architect and principal of Studioteka, Dr. Rohit Jigyasu, project manager for urban heritage, climate change, and disaster risk management at ICCROM, and others will be the guest speakers. Dr. Alexander J. Kent, the WMF Britain Coastal Connections Lead, will serve as the panel moderator. Rising Seas
