Centre for Global Heritage and Development releases report on impacts of climate change on cultural heritage in The Netherlands

The Centre for Global Heritage and Development released a report on the impacts of climate change on cultural heritage in the Netherlands.

Researchers from  Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam analysed the exposure of 63.389 Dutch national monuments to drought, heat, coastal and river flooding and urban pluvial flooding. The information helps heritage conservators and governmental institutions to create better oversight of the necessities needed to protect and maintain Dutch national monuments.

Read the report on the Centre for Global Heritage and Development website.

The Centre for Global Heritage and Development is a partner of the European Heritage Tribune. For more information and news, see the partner page.
