Introduction to Cultural Landscape Management
Cultural landscapes, where human settlements are in harmony with nature, are important assets for sustainability. This e-study introduces the basic concept of cultural landscape management. It covers the definition of cultural landscape, the categories of cultural landscapes, values and significance of cultural landscape conservation, some common management challenges as well as initiatives taken by international and local organisations to manage cultural landscape sites. Learners can use the e-study to build up a basic understanding of what cultural landscapes are and what kinds of management issues may involve, and then further explore how an individual or a group or organisation can work to conserve and safeguard natural and cultural resources in a sustainable manner.
