Heritage Conservation is an evolving practice, and one of the current debates focuses on identifying and recovering the connections between nature and culture sectors.This exchange has become instrumental for the interpretation, conservation and sustainable management of both natural and cultural heritage sites.

 

The purpose of the Capacity Building Workshops on Nature-Culture Linkages in Asia and the Pacific (CBWNCL) is to contribute to the World Heritage Capacity Building Programme led by ICCROM and IUCN, in consultation with ICOMOS and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, in developing new approaches towards integrated conservation of cultural and natural heritage. These workshops started in 2016, explore nature-culture linkages with focus on theory and practice in Asia and the Pacific Region. The visit to Japanese heritage sites forms a core component of the programme where participants conduct practical work. Participants will be able to understand issues and explore approaches being adopted in the field.

 

The first workshop under the theme “Agricultural landscapes” was held in September 2016, which was inaugurated with an international symposium at the University of Tsukuba, and with field visits to the Noto Peninsula and the Historical villages of Shirakawa-go and Gokayama, World Heritage site since 1995. 14 participants coming from the culture and nature sectors from 9 countries in Asia and the Pacific (Philippines, India, Australia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, China, Turkey, Indonesia) and 2 countries from other regions (Latin America, Colombia and Africa, Ghana) gathered with international and Japanese experts during the workshop. The second workshop was dedicated to “Sacred Landscapes” and was held in September 2017. This time, the workshop closed with the Second International Symposium on Nature-Culture Linkages in Heritage Conservation. 16 participants from 13 countries in Asia and the Pacific (Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, China,Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Kyrgyzstan, India and Cambodia) 1 from Europe (France) and 1 from Africa (Ghana), visited along with international experts on the heritage field as well as Japanese professionals and site managers, the Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes of the Kii Mountain Range.
