Abstract (in English)

In 2021, we can assure that the climate crisis and the consequences of the pandemic have accelerated the deterioration of some World Heritage Sites. Cultural Itineraries have been especially affected; they occupy a large territory, and it isn't easy to monitor them entirely and comprehensively. Cultural Routes represent the interactive, dynamic, and evolutionary processes of human relations on a global scale. Their territorial transcendence has allowed cultural links between peoples, countries, regions, and continents. The exchange of ideas, goods, and beliefs over the centuries has generated important physical and territorial cohesion. Although they are currently in a situation of vulnerability, they can also offer information and knowledge to contribute to Climate Change RESILIENCE. The universal scope of Cultural Itineraries allows us to articulate cohesive responses and can become a fundamental asset for climate action. We will present a set of strategies and actions to deal with uncertainty and lack of information in the face of the changes occurring on our planet. It is a proposal to the Vice-President of the Americas for the Triennial Plan of the Scientific Committee of Cultural Itineraries. We will implement three projects: Training, Introduction to Risk Management, and Case Studies, where we will analyse some examples of "Traditional Ecological Knowledge”.
