Les peuples autochtones portent la parole d'une nature et d'un climat menacés au Bourget
"Nous voulons que les dirigeants veillent à ce que survive notre terre mère", interpelle Felix Santi, représentant du peuple Quechua (Amazonie), présent à Paris, pour la COP 21. Comme lui, les peuples autochtones du monde entier souhaitent faire entendre leur voix au Bourget : leur cadre de vie est menacé et, par là, leur mode de vie, leur culture et leurs traditions. "La santé et le bien-être du peuple Inuit a toujours été lié à son environnement. Nous sommes touchés par les impacts du changement climatique sur notre culture, notre organisation sociale et économique", souligne Okalik Eegeesiak, représentant du Conseil circumpolaire inuit (ICC).
Mais les peuples autochtones sont aussi, et surtout, là pour que leur rôle soit reconnu dans la lutte contre le changement climatique. "Nous sommes les utilisateurs, mais aussi les ayants droit de la forêt, rappelle Joan Carling (Philippines), représentante des peuples autochtones aux Nations unies. Nous sommes les gardiens de la forêt et, à ce titre, nos droits coutumiers doivent être pris en compte, tout comme notre contribution à la lutte contre le changement climatique".

Publications
 

El número 88 de revista PH invita a la reflexión
ISSN: 2340-7565
Revista del IAPH para los profesionales del patrimonio cultural
Published: 2015
Revista ph publica el número de otoño de 2015 cargado de contenidos interesantes y puntos de vista variados que enriquecen cada una de sus secciones. En el panorama de la actualidad patrimonial se hace un hueco el tema de los derechos de autor en la “era digital” a través del Proyecto Outings y de la encuesta de NEMO, y se sugirieren otras reflexiones sobre: el decreto regulador de los guías de turismo en Andalucía; la Ley 10/2015 para la salvaguarda del PCI; o la incorporación de nuevos agentes y sistemas de colaboración social en el ámbito patrimonial (caso de El Cabanyal y del Proyecto Nuraghe). Esta línea reflexiva continúa en el resto de secciones: en Perspectivas debatiendo sobre cómo asumir el imperativo de eficiencia energética en la edificación histórica; en la Entrevista a Dominique Perrault donde comparte su visión sobre la cuota de responsabilidad de lo público y lo privado en la patrimonialización de la ciudad contemporánea; o en Proyectos, actuaciones y experiencias con el balance sobre el Registro de Paisajes de Interés Cultural de Andalucía, entre otras contribuciones.

World Heritage Review: Special Issue Nº 77 - World Heritage and climate change
ISSN 1020-4202
EAN 3059630101776
Published: 2015
World Heritage sites are the most spectacular places on the planet, and natural sites are often crucial for sustaining biodiversity hotspots and natural habitats for endangered species. Cultural sites, masterpieces of human creativity, cities and cultural landscapes are often fragile when confronted by the effects of climate change. Published ahead of the COP21 meeting of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) to be held from 30 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris, France, this issue will focus on methods of adaptation and best practices for dealing with the consequences of climate change at World Heritage sites, both cultural and natural, and will also examine some recent experience in mitigating the effects of climate change for intangible heritage.
The new sites inscribed on the World Heritage List during the 39th session of the World Heritage Committee, held in Bonn (Germany) from 28 June to 8 July 2015, will also be presented.

MY ALEPPO. Against Forgetting - Pictures and Stories from Aleppo
The city portrait reader MYAL - My Aleppo
English / Arabic / German
ISBN 978-3-9809887-6-6
Published: 2015
My Aleppo is being published in the second edition and will be available commercially in December 2015 and as a collector's edition from January 2016
The first, already out of print edition of MYAL was published in 2011. The third
volume in the series of city portrait readers on international cities shows
“views on the inside” of the life of Aleppines: urban structures as well as ways of life and
manners that have evolved over centuries.
The two editors then preserved in their foreword: “As we write this preface, an atmosphere of change is evident in Syrian society, the effects of which are not yet foreseeable. Thus, the articles in the book document something that will (or may) perhaps soon be a part of the past. Yet, it will also still present the basis for the future.”

In fact, MYAL now documents an era that, in the meantime, belongs to the past. Nevertheless or precisely because of it, this volume can possibly make comprehensible, what an incredible loss must be lamented.
The war has not only caused countless deaths, driven millions of people to flee and destroyed much of the unique architecture of Aleppo, but it is also a war against the world cultural heritage of mankind. Therefore, the publication of the second edition is both a documentary and an appeal at the same time to keep alive the memories of Aleppo and its stories.
The focus of the book consists of photos from the early 1900's, among others from the Poche Marrache Archives (one of the last great merchant dynasties of the city), and the archives of Thierry Grandin, as well as pictures of different photographers from the years 2005 to 2010.
There are more everyday snapshots of natives and foreigners, from the visible and the invisible, from the narrow old town quarters and the Souq with its noisy intimacy, the view from the Citadel out across the city and immersion into partially strange and hidden worlds of Aleppo and its inhabitants. The pictures are complemented by stories of various authors about t

Principles for the Conservation of Heritage Sites in China (Revised 2015).
Issued by ICOMOS China. Approved by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage
Bilingual Chinese-English text
Published: 2015
Originally promulgated in 2000 by ICOMOS China with bilingual versions published in 2002 and 2004, the Principles for the Conservation of Heritage Sites in China were the first set of national guidelines for cultural heritage practice in China.
In 2010, after ten years of applying the Principles and awareness of international developments related to cultural heritage, ICOMOS China and the State Administration of Cultural Heritage undertook to revise and expand the thematic content with the participation of the Getty Conservation Institute. The aim of the revision was to update and clarify the Principles in light of recent thinking and practice in China and to better reflect the broad understanding that now prevails internationally as to what constitutes cultural heritage.
This 2015 bilingual version was prepared and designed by ICOMOS China with facilitation and editing of the English translation by the GCI. As was the intention in the original version of the Principles, the translation was considered important to provide English-speaking professionals who work in China and the international preservation community with access to the China Principles. In the revised version each of the forty-five Principles is followed by associated Commentary that explains and amplifies it. The Glossary has been retained and updated or corrected as needed.
