Abstract (in English)

PART 4. BUILDING CAPACITY FOR CHANGE: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS AND NEW OPPORTUNITIES /// World Heritage Studies at the University of Tsukuba has the characteristic of being composed of faculty dedicated to both natural heritage and cultural heritage conservation. Profiting from this distinctive feature, the University of Tsukuba was the first to embark on a major activity to contribute to the World Heritage Capacity Building Programme focused on the new paradigm of linking nature and culture (2013-2014) and its follow-up activities, which also led to the creation of a UNESCO Chair on the theme. Gathering natural and cultural heritage practitioners and convening natural science and social studies and humanities, the UNESCO Chair on Nature-Culture Linkages at the University of Tsukuba has been holding capacity building workshops for Asia and the Pacific since 2016, in cooperation with ICCROM and IUCN, and with the support of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and ICOMOS. Themes focused under the umbrella of linking nature and culture are: Agricultural Landscapes (CBWNCL 2016), Sacred Landscapes (CBWNCL 2017), Disasters and Resilience (CBWNCL 2018) and Mixed Cultural and Natural Heritage (CBWNCL 2019). From these experiences, we have found that interdisciplinarity, language, diversity of legal frameworks and institutional systems bring about a myriad of misunderstandings and disagreements. However, in this diversity lies opportunity.
