International Lender Standards for Cultural Heritage
Author(s): Gregory Lockard
This paper will provide an overview of international lender standards for cultural heritage and their implementation on development projects throughout the world. The paper will begin with a discussion of the history and objectives of international lender standards for cultural heritage. This discussion will focus on Performance Standard 8 (Cultural Heritage) of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards on Environmental and Social Sustainability (2012), as the Equator Principles (2013) and many other multilateral lender requirements incorporate the IFC Performance Standards. The paper will then discuss how the standards are implemented by different kinds of development projects in different parts of the world. This discussion will be guided by example projects on which the author has worked in North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
