HIGHLIGHTS

Lessons towards safeguarding Asia-Pacific’s rich cultural heritage

Pressures from rapid urbanisation, natural catastrophes to war and political conflicts are making our heritage buildings, landscapes and settlements ever more vulnerable to loss and destruction. It has become clear that in order to safeguard our region's heritage, the conservation of these unique sites should be a responsibility shared by government and civil society.
