ICOMOS and IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) are pleased to announce the launch of the third phase of the Connecting Practice project






The Connecting Practice project explores new methods and practical strategies for the recognition and support of the interconnectedness of natural and cultural heritage at World Heritage Sites.

Following the successful work done in the first two phases of Connecting Practice, the third phase will continue to explore relevant information gathered as part of the project, and to implement lessons learned into practical interventions and new mechanisms for achieving positive results for agricultural and biocultural practices. This third phase of the project will focus specifically on evolved cultural landscapes, and will explore how to best support and sustain traditional management practices and change management within the processes of the World Heritage framework. The GIAHS (Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems) programme is a partner of Phase III.

A Call for Interest for site managers of World Heritage sites is being launched in parallel with the start of Phase III. If you are interested in participating in the project, please fill out the questionnaire available here and respond by 30 September 2018.
