The Regional Secretariat Northwest Europe of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC), one of the organization’s 8 regional secretariats, has recently published a position paper on “Safeguarding and Further Developing World Heritage Cities”.

Based on the experiences of its member cities, the paper addresses the challenges and experimented hands-on solutions to managing World Heritage as part of integrated urban development. Taking into account the UNESCO Recommen­dation on the Historic Urban Landscape (2011), the paper is intended to contribute to better understanding the role of local administrative actions in urban conservation and, ultimately, to serve as a basis for political advice at various administrative levels.
