Climate change impacts on cultural heritage: Facing the challenge

Followup-Flexible Mechanism

The UN Secretary General,  in his Climate Action Summit 2019 Report, included the Greek proposal on the protection of cultural heritage from the impacts of climate change, and proposed, upon the recommendation of the Greek Government,  the creation of a follow-up mechanism. The goal of the  Flexible Mechanism is to promote and accelerate  the implementation of actions and cooperation schemes, to bridge scientific knowledge and climate mitigation and adaptation tools with informed decision making by the interested States and to enhance the relevant research. The Flexible Mechanism comprises of representatives from Greece, UNESCO and the WMO.
