Major archaeological and cultural heritage sites are being damaged and destroyed at an alarming rate around the globe, perhaps nowhere as quickly as in developing countries and regions with limited financial resources or expertise available. To address this crisis, GHF has established Global Heritage Network (GHN) to:
- Act as an early warning and threats monitoring system for endangered archaeological and cultural heritage sites in developing countries.
- Enable the collaboration of experts and conservation leaders to mitigate the threats.
- Facilitate a holistic, Preservation by Design® process of planning, science, community and partnerships to preserve these sites.
