Measuring cultural loss and addressing damage

At a recent conference at the University of East Anglia, archaeologists, climate scientists and policy experts met to discuss how climate change is causing unique cultures and heritage to disappear and what can be done to measure and address this issue. Vulnerable communities often bear the brunt of the consequences of climate change, and the loss of cultures and heritage is one aspect of “loss and damage”. Speakers at the conference highlighted how climate change is already affecting culture and heritage across the world, from coastal Ghana to the Norfolk seaside. The conference also discussed how to measure and track heritage loss and adjust IPCC reports to better reflect the significance of heritage loss from warming.
