*The August 2019 Newsletter of the ICA Human Rights Working Group is available online. This edition is particularly rich, and many human rights related news items and announcements from around the globe.
Here is an excerpt from Trudy Huskamp Peterson’s commentary:
“Archivists have thought a great deal about coping with disasters, such as floods and hurricanes that result in (usually) temporary displacement. And archivists have given some thought to disaster preparedness, too. But inexorable climate change requires a longer strategy. Archives of all kinds will have to assess the risk, decide how to mitigate that risk, and take action, which may take years to accomplish. Does the archives move? Does it stay in place but send security copies to another location, either in the country or outside? Does it need evacuation plans? Will building changes, like a seawall, be enough? “
