Heritage@Risk International Report
The Heritage @ Risk program was endorsed by ICOMOS members at the General Assembly in Mexico in 1999.
The aim of these reports is to identify threatened heritage places, monuments and sites, present typical case studies and trends, and share suggestions for solving individual or global threats to our cultural heritage.
This report continues to highlight significant New Zealand heritage at risk and supplements previous reports from ICOMOS New Zealand. It discusses heritage protection mechanisms in New Zealand and recent legislative changes which have included heritage as a matter of national importance.
Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings @ Risk
The Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings in Christchurch suffered extensive damage during the earthquake of 22 February 2011.
This report provides an update on the condition of the buildings and the current programme of stabilisation and recovery of significant features and materials for later reconstruction or interpretation.
The Heritage Alert process uses ICOMOS’ professional and public networks to promote the conservation of cultural heritage and draw attention to the threats which it confronts and to promote good conservation solutions. ICOMOS New Zealand prepared a Heritage Alert for the Christ Church Cathedral in Christchurch, in 2015.
