Biography

MANAGING DIRECTOR – THE HERITAGE CONSULTANCY
CHAIRMAN EMERITUS – AUSHERITAGE LTD.

Graham is a conservation architect and heritage consultant based in Sydney, Australia, where he is Managing Director of a private sector Heritage Consultancy firm. Much of his career has centred on the conservation and heritage management of historic buildings, urban areas and cultural landscapes throughout Australia. Graham is a former Chairman of the National Trust Historic Buildings Committee in New South Wales and Chairman Emeritus of AusHeritage Ltd, a cross sectoral heritage network established in the mid 1990s with the support of the Australian Government.

Graham’s work in cultural tourism has included extensive investigations into the relationship between tourism and heritage places throughout Europe, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific. His interest and expertise in cultural tourism management is based on extensive travels and research since the mid 1970s, including to over 300 World Heritage Sites, and participation in numerous international projects and workshops. Graham is the current President of the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Committee, and was the coordinating author for the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Charter (1999) and the UNWTO Tourism Congestion Management at Cultural and Heritage Sites: A Guidebook (2005). He represented ICOMOS on the World Heritage Sustainable Tourism Initiative program developed by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre. He has been a member of international expert advisory panels for Borobudur and Prambanan Temple Compounds in Indonesia and the Ajanta/Ellora Rock Cut Temple Caves in India, and contributed to the development of the Lijiang Principles project initiated by UNESCO Bangkok to promote the capture, by host communities, of socio-economic benefits from tourism. A current project, again on behalf of the UN World Tourism Organisation, is the development of a new handbook for the tourism sector on Communicating Heritage.

Global Heritage Fund (GHF) is a non-profit organization that operates internationally. Its mission statement says that it exists to protect and preserve significant and endangered cultural heritage sites in the developing world, through scientific excellence and community development. GHF specifically focuses its funding and conservation efforts on the developing world because of the scarce human and technical resources in those countries to protect their historical treasures, and for the economic promise heritage sites have as community-based, responsibly-managed tourist destinations. Founded in California in 2002, GHF has since invested over $25 million and secured $20 million in co-funding for 19 global heritage sites to ensure their sustainable preservation and responsible development. Its "Preservation by Design" model guides each selected heritage project through an integrated process of community-based planning, science, development and partnerships to enable long-term sustainable preservation and responsible development of global heritage sites.
