Abstract

The cluster met three times in 2009, on each occasion focusing on issues relating to the vulnerabilities and resilience of a World Heritage Site. The context for the group’s work was of risks from climate variability to landscape, archaeology and built environment. The range of participants was wide, many from academia, but also from local authorities, heritage organisations that influence devolved government policy in heritage and the private sector. At each meeting there were core participants, who were joined by stakeholders with more local interests. More than 60 individuals played a direct part in the cluster activities. This story includes outcomes in terms of topics discussed and research directions considered important by the participants.
