GHF Senior Technical Advisor John Hurd has conducted a preliminary Site Conservation Inspection, prepared a Mortar and Plaster Documentation Report, and collected samples for lab testing to identify appropriate conservation materials.
GHF's John Hurd and Vince Michael Consider Value, Limitations of World Heritage Convention John Hurd, GHF's Senior Technical Advisor and President of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) Advisory Committee, sees the convention, in part, as a product of war - inspired by the "fantastic fear" that followed the Second World War, put together "for the sake of world peace. As a result of this, Hurd agrees that the inscription process has become more politicized, with sites being listed against the advice of advisory bodies, as states parties chase tourism dollars. "We can't do anything about armed groups walking around destroying things," says Hurd, who instead points to preventative measures taken in places like Libya, where combatants were supplied with inventories of sites to be avoided.
