Abstract (in English)

Heritage at Risk 2008-2010 Report is a world report on monuments and sites in danger in many countries across the globe. With prefaces by the Assistant Director General for UNESCO, Francesco Bandarin, and ICOMOS President Gustavo Araoz, this sixth volume, which for the first time includes a comprehensive index of all cases or sites discussed in H@R reports published since 2000, provides a certain overview of the dangers, problems and trends regarding the protection of monuments and sites in the different regions of the world. Reports from 40 countries illustrate the broad range of threats faced by our cultural heritage. Particular emphasis is placed this time on the consequences of recent devastating earthquakes and other natural disasters (including Chile, China, Haiti, Italy and New Zealand). In addition, there are reports on dam projects in Turkey, Pakistan and Brazil; on threats to the historic towns of Istanbul and Jeddah as well as on the Temple of Preah Vihear in Cambodia which is suffering from a border conflict. The report also informs on the measures undertaken to save the Buddhas of Bamiyan and the Buddhist monasteries of Mès Ainak in Afghanistan, endangered by a copper mining project. Besides reports on problematic new development projects in Budapest, Istanbul, St. Petersburg, Tel Aviv and Vienna, a detailed report deals with the continuing critical situation of Russian avant-garde architecture, especially in Moscow. ICOMOS expresses its deep gratitude to Michael Petzet, former President of ICOMOS International, who after a decade as editor is handing over work on future Heritage at Risk reports to Christoph Machat, member of the Executive Committee. ICOMOS is also thankful to the German Federal Government Commissioner for Cultural Affairs and the Media for funding this edition.

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.
