Heritage Homeowner’s Preservation Manual
Abstract:
The series of Heritage Homeowner’s Preservation Manuals for UNESCO World Heritage Sites has been produced in response to the growing need to ensure the sustainable conservation of historic towns of Outstanding Universal Value. The Homeowner’s Manuals have been developed within the framework of the "Integrated Community Development and Cultural Heritage Site Preservation in Asia and the Pacific through Local Effort" programme (LEAP), which strengthens local community involvement in heritage conservation. The manuals aim to build local capacity in heritage preservation by training homeowners to maintain their historic properties using appropriate conservation approaches.The manuals present a synthesis of traditional building techniques and modern conservation science. They codify time-tested methods adapted to each type of structure using indigenous building materials and techniques. The manuals have been developed in conjunction with local heritage managers and national conservation experts, who will also be involved in training local stakeholders.
