Abstract (in English)

ICOMOS is dedicated to the development of common doctrines, the evolution and circulation of knowledge, the creation of improved conservation techniques, and the promotion of cultural heritage significance. As an official advisory body to the World Heritage Committee for the implementation of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, ICOMOS evaluates nominations and advises on the state of conservation of properties inscribed on the World Heritage List. ICOMOS has built a solid philosophical, doctrinal and managerial framework for the sustainable conservation of heritage around the world. The ICOMOS Heritage at Risk Reports, first published in 2000, are part of this framework. From a strictly preservation-based approach this publication series offers world-wide information about the dangers that are threatening our cultural heritage, in order to provide help in the case of risks and to promote practical measures to avert or at least allay these risks. The Heritage at Risk Reports are also addressed to the world public as an urgent appeal to commit itself to saving our heritage. The reports furthermore serve as data base for the ICOMOS Global Monitoring Network.

Les rapports sur le patrimoine en péril s'adressent également à l'opinion publique mondiale et se veulent une sonnette d'alarme afin qu'elle s'engage dans la lutte pour la sauvegarde de notre patrimoine. Ce nouveau volume est constitué des contributions des comités nationaux ou scientifiques internationaux de l'ICOMOS, mais aussi, comme il est d'usage, des rapports d'experts individuels et des extraits de différents expertises, d'articles et communiqués de presse. L'analyse des rapports révèle que, outre les risques généraux que constituent pour le patrimoine les catastrophes naturelles et la dégradation physique des structures, certaines tendances dans l'activité humaine mettent en danger notre patrimoine, par exemple les risques liés aux conflits armés et inter-ethniques, au développement, au tourisme. Les rapports servent en outre de base de données pour le réseau de surveillance mondial de l'ICOMOS, créé récemment.
