The present referent document describes the commitments of the local authority in term of sustainable management of cultural (tangible and intangible) and natural heritages.
Although it is systematically clarified in the text, all the described commitments are to be considered under the heritage point of view only.
If, according to the local or regional organization, the community has no authority on some of the fields covered by the commitments, it must prove that it did everything it could to get as close as it could to the required level.
The referent document establishes the criteria in order to obtain the label of this CWA "Guidelines for Sustainable Development of Historic and Cultural Cities – QualicitiesÂ®.
It applies to any cultural and heritage city or territory, at the local or regional level.
