Concept Note
 
The cultural and natural heritage resources across the world serve as markers of socio-cultural and political ‘identities’ and have great potential for economic development. However, increasing reliance on these finite resources and threats by both anthropogenic and natural agencies has led to a large section of them being designated as ‘fragile’ or ‘vulnerable’. Such processes have reached alarming levels during the past few decades and resulted in heritage practitioners and policy makers to continuously formulate strategies to counter such threats. While such efforts are appreciable, it must be noted that the threats faced by heritage resources in different parts of the world are diverse. Such a phenomenon thereby calls for a dialogue amongst heritage practitioners and policy makers from different parts of the world to deliberate strategies to counter threats to heritage resources and optimally utilise these resources for furthering socio-economic development. The current workshop in this regard, aims to provide a forum for heritage practitioners and policy makers to deliberate and formulate strategies to assess and evaluate threats to heritage resources, optimally preserve them and promote sustainable development.
