Center for Heritage Conservation (CHC), CRDF, collaborated with UNESCO Cluster Office for Bangladesh, Bhutan, the Maldives, Nepal, India and Sri Lanka, National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA), and Metropolis in celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Recommendation on Historic Urban Landscape (HUL).  The celebration was through a special edition webinar series held on 10th, 12th, 16th, and 18th November.  The four thematic sessions of the webinar were – ‘Historic Urban Landscapes – Opportunities and Challenges’, ‘The Role of Heritage in Sustainable Urban Development', ‘Future of Historic Towns - Relevance of HUL Approach’, and ‘Way Forward for Historic Sites and Cities’. 

In the first three thematic sessions, experts from leading practices and organisations in the field shared their experiences of working with the HUL approach through case presentations of cities and towns in India and from across the world, followed by moderated panel discussions.  In the concluding thematic session, action points for urban local bodies were presented along with a call for action to adopt the HUL approach to accelerate inclusive and sustainable urban heritage management, followed by concluding panel discussions on the way forward.  The event announcement is available here.
