Abstract (in English)

Cairo boasts some of the richest and most unique Islamic cultural heritage sites among its counterpart cities in the world. Historic Cairo alone, holds within its walls 313 registered sites. However, Cairo is also one of the most crowded and dynamic cities, facing a multitude of problems. Recently, focus has shifted towards sustainable cultural heritage management. However, very little attention has been given to preserving the historic and cultural aspects of its dynamic settings.
