CRITICAL aims to work in partnership this project will combine heritage management, cultural geography and climate risk research to form a community of practice including researchers from South Africa, Sri Lanka and Indonesia to:

1) identify the key parameters for cultural heritage impact assessment;

2) deliver risk scenarios for decision-making, and

3) share resulting tools and learning through a capacity building and research-to-policy strategy.

We have a blog site to explore as well: Climate Change Adaptation and Cultural Heritage – A space for sharing stories, ideas and updates from research and learning on climate change adaptation (
