Abstract (in English)

Experience has shown that loss and damage to cultural heritage arising from catastrophes cause or exacerbate personal and social trauma. Often the trauma caused by that loss is also the first trigger for pursuing the physical reconstruction of damaged or destroyed heritage places. Guidance for the recovery of cultural heritage is needed, and this document addresses that need. This Guidance document is not intended to be prescriptive. It is not a manual nor a toolkit. Rather, it provides a framework through which the recovery of heritage places can be supported and harnessed in coming to terms with and overcoming the trauma associated with destruction and loss. Integrating the recovery of damaged heritage places within general recovery processes is crucial for sound and lasting post-event recovery processes. Hence, to ensure that the recovery of heritage places can be integrated into those larger processes, this Guidance also makes reference to guiding documents related to broader post-event recovery. In addressing the recovery and reconstruction of heritage places, the Guidance builds upon the body of thought and practice developed by ICOMOS and ICCROM over decades of their activity. Existing conservation theoretical documents, guidelines or toolkits remain valid, and reference is made to them whenever relevant and useful. [Introduction]
