The primary paper session related to cultural heritage will be led by Arlene Fleming. It's entitled Improving Coverage of Cultural Heritage in EIA and is session 228.

The guidance document, prepared in collaboration between ICCROM, IUCN, and IAIA, is designed to replace to existing guidance documents from ICOMOS and IUCN related to World Heritage and Impact Assessment. The new guidance was the focus of three sessions at IAIA19 in Brisbane. The upcoming workshop, entitled Impact Assessment Guidelines for World Heritage, is session 305. Please make sure to include attendance at this important workshop part of your planning for IAIA20.

  • IAIA 2020 - abstracts wanted

    Oct 8, 2019 by Colleen Purtill

    Please consider submitting an abstract for our session "Incorporating Indigenous Knowledge into Health Impact Assesment".

    We are looking for examples of how Indigenous participation and knowledge are being incorporated into Health Impact Assessments. Topics for discussion may include engagement and consultation programs, baseline health and susceptibility, traditional land use, and vulnerabilities related to food security and climate change.

    An Indigenous Knowledge Policy Framework is currently under development in Canada to ensure that indigenous knowledge provisions in the new Impact Assessment legislation are applied consistently.  Examples of this practice or policies from other countries with the intent to incorporate Indigenous knowledge into health impact assessment are welcome.

  • IAIA Collaboration with IUCN-ICCROM on World Heritage and Impact Assessment

    Oct 8, 2018 by Christopher Polglase

    In September 2018, ICCROM-IUCN World Heritage Leadership Programme hosted a workshop in Gland, Switzerland on the topic of World Heritage and Impact Assessment together with ICOMOS. This was the opening event in a multi-year effort to develop coordinated guidance and training for heritage professionals working on impact assessment where World Heritage and other heritage may be impacted. The workshop and future events are part of the World Heritage Leadership Programme (https://www.iucn.org/theme/world-heritage/our-work/world-heritage-projects/world-heritage-leadership, https://www.iccrom.org/themes/world-heritage/world-heritage-leadership/impact-assessment). The International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) also participated in the workshop and has agreed to work together with the World Heritage Leadership Programme initiative related to impact assessment.

    At the upcoming IAIA19 conference in Brisbane, Australia a paper session (Session #118) is scheduled on the topic of heritage conservation and impact assessment. Our hope is to elicit case studies that illustrate good practice that can contribute to guidance to practitioners and stakeholders. Please consider submitting an abstract to the IAIA19 conference for this exciting session.

    Session proposals are due no later than October 19th 2018. You can submit session proposals here: http://conferences.iaia.org/2019/guidelines-policies-paper-poster-presenters.php.
