image of Climate Change and Cultural Heritage in the Nordic Countries

The project Effects of Climate Change on Cultural Heritage Sites and Cultural Environments is a collaboration between the cultural heritage administrations of seven Nordic countries: Iceland, Greenland, the Faeroe Islands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway. The aim of the project has been to assist the cultural heritage administrators in meeting the anticipated climate change and to strengthen collaboration and network building between the Nordic cultural heritage administrators. The publication Climate Change and Cultural Heritage in the Nordic Countries contains the main results of the project's work. The report consists of two parts, part one of which discusses the anticipated effects of climate change on cultural heritage sites and cultural environments in the Nordic countries. Part two addresses what consequences the climate change will have for the management of heritage sites and includes the project group's recommendations for handling these consequences.

Direct consequences of climate change for the cultural heritage sector

In the longer term, the effects of climate change can be expected to result in more damage to cultural heritage sites and increased losses. It will also be of significance for the management of cultural heritage sites that conservation conditions will change, whether for better or worse. Climate change may also lead to new finds of artefacts and sites. The consequences all this will have for the management of cultural heritage sites and cultural environments is the theme of section 4.1. Section 4.5 proposes some relevant action that can be taken to prevent loss and damage and to handle the changes that come.
