Abstract (in English)

UNESCO World Heritage Centre (WHC) indicates that community participation and communication is particularly important for heritage preservation with the 5Cs strategies. In 2015, in the UN Sendai Declaration it is specified that, on risk preparedness for cultural heritage, material and non- material supporting system is necessary. Evidently, community participation should be one of the key issues included in the non- material system. In view of these considerations, the role of stakeholders and community participation is definitively vital on risk management for cultural heritage. Its task includes various aspects such as recognition of cultural value, understanding hazard history, disaster indicators, drafting disaster management plan and providing training drills. In this study, based on the concept of cultural mapping, we will explore how different collected information can be analyzed, applied and implemented, while promoting the aforesaid work. Ultimately, it is expected that we can use Geography Information System (GIS) as an important platform for integration and presentation of the information. Positivism reveals that continuously promoting risk map to communicate with stakeholders is an easy and effective way for comprehension of value, risk identification and disaster relief planning. Relevant information is also sufficiently accumulated, which will provide important basis for other work.
