The objective of the preparatory project is to develop a high quality main project application.
Adapt Northern Heritage (ANH) will develop a software platform and community network for location-specific environmental risks and vulnerability assessments of historic places. Based on climate change predictions, this will enable local and regional authorities and local and special-interest communities to identify and implement adaptation activities through informed and sustainable conservation planning.
Due to the remoteness and geographical dispersedness, authorities and communities in Europe’s Northern Periphery and Arctic (NPA) area and in other northern world regions are finding it particularly difficult to develop the required capacities, and allocate sufficient resources, to achieve sustainable heritage management which actively takes climate change into account. Through its dual output, ANH will support stakeholders in coping with the complexities added to heritage management by planning for climate change impacts.
