The World Heritage Institute of Training and Research for the Asia and the Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (WHITRAP) created a special web site dedicated to the Historic Urban Landscape (HUL).

The Historic Urban Landscape (HUL) is an approach to the management of heritage resources in dynamic and constantly changing environments. It is based on the recognition and identification of a layering and interconnection of natural and cultural, tangible and intangible, international and local values present in any city. According to the HUL approach, these values should be taken as a point of departure in the overall management and development of the city.

The website on Historic Urban Landscape contains several sections:

  • News items on Historic Urban Landscape
  • What is the HUL?
  • Why was the HUL approach developed? 
  • How is the HUL approach applied? 
  • Pilot Cities
  • Partners
  • Reports
