A Guide to Risk Management of Cultural Heritage

“This guide, supported with examples and illustrations, provides a scientific model and methodology for risk examination and assessment. It enables cultural heritage professionals and institutions to devise intervention plans based on thorough assessment, which can ultimately facilitate decisionmaking processes. The methodology adopted throughout this guide was developed in compatibility with the specific requirements of cultural heritage management, and derived from risk assessment methodologies implemented in other fields, such as public health and insurance.” (p.4)
