The ‘Protection against Natural Hazards’ strategy developed recently by the National Platform for Natural Hazards (PLANAT) aims to optimise the protection of the population in terms of effective risk management, as well as improve the coordination of preventive measures. The ‘Cultural Property and the Threat of Earthquakes’ report commissioned by the Federal Council also pursues the same objective. This issue of PCP Forum will examine the impact of earthquakes on cultural property, discuss possible measures to protect and limit damage, and raise awareness of earthquake risks among those responsible and at all levels.
