Event: Cultural heritage solutions for water challenges
At the ICOMOS General Assembly in Delhi, India in December 2017 the ICOMOS Scientific Council encouraged ICOMOS Netherlands to initiate the establishment of an International Scientific Committee on Water and Heritage (ISCWH). Subsequently, at the Water as Heritage International Conference held in Taiwan in 2019, a Task Force was formed for this purpose. The Task Force prepared a Mission Statement and a Statement of Significance, and in 2020, organised a survey to gauge interest for the establishment of an ISCWH among National Committees and ICOMOS members. Of those surveyed globally, more than 80% recognized the absence of a group within ICOMOS that focused sufficiently on water-related heritage and almost 80% felt that the creation of the ISC would complement ICOMOS' mission. Over 90% of survey respondents felt that the existence of a Water and Heritage ISC could encourage National Committees to organize National Scientific Committees for Water and Heritage. Building on the survey respondents' strong support, the creation of the new ISCWH was to be included on the agenda for the ICOMOS General Assembly scheduled for October 2020. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, the event will not take place in Sydney.
