Conference: Heritage Loss and Climate Change Damage

Thursday, 12 January, 2023

This conference will discuss how to measure the human cost of loss and damage to coastal heritage from sea-level rise and coastal erosion. It is increasingly recognised that archaeology and heritage have much to offer climate change policy but, due to disciplinary differences in methodologies and how data and evidence are expressed and communicated, heritage is not routinely included into climate change assessment reports. The conference will gather an exciting transdisciplinary team of scholars and policy experts to explore what is meant by ‘the human cost’, and how it can be measured. From there we aim to better align humanities-social science heritage scholarship with science-based climate change scholarship so that heritage can be better integrated into climate change policy assessments.
