ICA-SAHR invites you to our next First Tuesday Talk on April 5, 2022
Claudio Ogass Bilbao, PhD student in Archives and Records Management at the University of Liverpool, and Francisco González Villanueva, geologist from the University of Chile
Mapping Climate Change to Protect Archives
The objective of this presentation is to share a methodology under construction to identify the potential risks caused by climate change that threaten the sustainability and content of archives in different parts of the world, based on the experiences and learning from our mapping and georeferencing work in two Latin American cities: Rio de Janeiro in Brazil and Santiago in Chile. Although the preliminary results show that less than 2% are located in dangerous geographical areas, we intend to share the process of our research with the aim that more archivists become aware of the importance of this issue in the planning of the internal tasks of their archivists, institutions and, in turn, develop emergency plans to mitigate possible negative effects. Finally, we are interested in stimulating more studies of this type to configure a multinational response to this problem.
