SamenvattingA Cultural Property Risk Analysis Model was developed to guide priorities for resource allocation to preventive conservation under conditions of uncertainty. This model recognizes the preservation system as a subsystem within a collection management system, which, in turn, nests within progressively broader systems. Within this set of systems and subsystems, the contribution of preventive conservation to the continuance and betterment of humanity is recognised. Carefully defining the scope of the preservation system ensures clear understanding of interactions with surrounding systems. The risk analysis model then disaggregates risk through hierarchies both of sources of risk and of divisions of collections. The level of technical risk analysis varies throughout these hierarchies depending on the potential significance of the disaggregate portion considered. This approach makes the entire modeling process as efficient as possible. This approach is applicable to all forms of cultural property.
