Program pertama yang dijalankan di bawah projek ini adalah Bengkel Awal Program Pembangunan Kapasiti  Pengurangan Risiko Bencana untuk Bandar-bandar Bersejarah di Asia Tenggara dan Pulau-Pulau Kecil di Asia Pasifik yang telah berlangsung di George Town pada 5 dan 6 April 2017. Disusuli dengan Bengkel Kebangsaan Penyelarasan Koordinasi bagi Melaksana Strategi Pengurangan Risiko Bencana di Bandar Bersejarah George Town pada 1 dan 2 Mac 2018 yang bertujuan untuk membangunkan strategi yang lebih efektif bagi pengurangan risiko bencana untuk George Town dengan menilai semula draf Strategi Pengurangan Risiko Bencana.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class="img-box"][vc_column][vc_single_image image="2191" img_size="full" alignment="center"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="fadeInUp" el_class="about1-text"][vc_column][vc_column_text]Pada masa yang sama, George Town World Heritage Incorporated juga menyebarkan pengetahuan mengenai pengurusan risiko bencana ini melalui bengkel dan kempen kesedaran bagi mendidik komuniti setempat untuk melaksanakan langkah-langkah pencegahan dan cara bertindak balas secara efektif dalam kejadian bencana seperti kebakaran dan banjir. Wakil daripada komuniti tempatan yang menetap di Tapak Warisan Dunia UNESCO George Town menghadiri bengkel pengurusan bencana untuk mengenal pasti risiko yang ada di sekeliling mereka secara kolektif, langkah-langkah pencegahan dan rancangan tindakan kecemasan. Bengkel dan sesi perbincangan yang dijalankan telah meningkatkan kesediaan mereka bagi menghadapi bencana, membolehkan mereka memahami dan mengenal pasti bahaya, kelemahan, faktor-faktor kemungkinan bencana dan kesan bencana di tapak. Program Tindak Balas Kebakaran Berasaskan Komuniti untuk Tapak Warisan Dunia UNESCO George Town telah dijalankan dengan kerjasama UNESCO Jakarta pada tahun 2019 untuk meningkatkan perlindungan kebakaran dan keupayaan tindak balas komuniti semasa berlakunya kecemasan. Setiap peserta akan menerima satu set alat pemadam api dan alat pengesan kebakaran yang akan diletakkan di premis masing-masing dan menjalani latihan asas memadam kebakaran serta diberikan maklumat untuk mengurangkan kebakaran. Pengurangan risiko bencana toolkit dalam bentuk poster informatif juga dihasilkan sebagai salah satu usaha program pembangunan kapasiti untuk mendidik orang awam mengenai langkah-langkah pengurangan dan meningkatkan keupayaan tindak balas mereka apabila berlakunya kecemasan. Setiap poster yang disediakan terdiri dalam empat bahasa iaitu Bahasa Inggeris, Bahasa Malaysia, Bahasa Cina dan Bahasa Tamil dan boleh dimuat turun secara percuma.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Untuk maklumat lanjut mengenai pengurusan risiko bencana di George Town, sila hubungi Cik Ng Boon Nee, Pegawai Perancang Bandar di talian 04-261 6606 atau e-mel kepada boonnee[at]gtwhi[dot]com[dot]my.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Epitaph: The Northam Road Protestant Cemetery (Volumes 1 and 2)

Hardback | 416 pages (Part 1); 798 pages (Part 2) | English

Publisher: George Town World Heritage Incorporated

Year Published: 2017

The Northam Road Protestant Cemetery is probably the first burial ground to have been established following settlement of Penang by the British East India Company in 1786. It is certainly the first Christian cemetery, catering to both Roman Catholic and Protestant burials. This richly illustrated, limited edition two-part set is the most definitive work ever published about the Protestant side of this cemetery. Covering all 464 surviving memorials and tombs, with background stories to most of the identifiable persons interred there, it captures an invaluable and enthralling snapshot of the lives of Penang's inhabitants during the settlement's first 100 years. It also contains a list of 1,437 names of other persons known to have been interred in the same cemetery during that time.

Penang Shophouses

Paperback | 93 pages | English

Publisher: Tan Yeow Wooi Culture and Heritage Research Studio

Year Published: 2015

Penang's architectural heritage is one of the finest in Southeast Asia. Perhaps the most characteristic building form is the shophouse whose design style has evolved over nearly two hundred years, picking up the influences from many different cultures. With a growing awareness of the significance of the built environment - stimulated by George Town's inscription by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 2008 - there is greater interest than ever in understanding the construction and conservation of these shophouses. Drawing on many years of research and practical experience as a heritage architect, Tan Yeow Wooi has produced and up-to-date, fully illustrated and comprehensive handbook that catalogues and represents the vast array of features and materials used in these outstanding buildings. Whether you are interested in interior design, whether you are preserving a shophouse, or whether you are simply exploring architectural history, Penang Shophouses is the state-of-the-art resource, invaluable for professionals and the general public alike.

Drawing on unrivalled access to original correspondence, reports, newspapers and contemporary accounts, Penang: The Fourth Presidency of India presents an in-depth and compelling narrative of a fascinating story.

Beautifully illustrated with paintings, sketches, engravings and maps - many previously unpublished - this and the accompanying volumes will be the authoritative reference for historians and general readers for generations to come.

POTEHI – Glove Puppet Theatre of Penang

Boxset | 163 pages | English

Publisher: George Town World Heritage Incorporated

Year Published: 2017

The glove puppet theatre of East and Southeast Asia - known as potehi - is one of the oldest and best-loved performing arts traditions. This bilingual multimedia box set - containing a lavishly illustrated book, two charming flipbooks, a spectacular stage pop-up, attractive posters and a captivating performance DVD - presents a comprehensive account of the rich history and current practice of potehi in Penang, Malaysia. Starting with an historical account of how glove puppet theatre came to Penang and its ritualistic roots, the authors trace every aspect of the heritage, principles and techniques of four present-day troupes: the performers, patrons and audiences; the rituals and celebrations; the anatomy of the stages and the puppets themselves; the stories, scripts and music; and the control and manipulation of the puppets. Based on extensive research and observation, Potehi Glove Puppet Theatre of Penang brings to life the artistry of the magical world of puppets and puppet theatre - and passes it on to a new generation.
