"Urban heritage can help form the community identity, contribute to stronger social cohesion and connectivity, and also be a driving force in sustainable development which is one of the top priority agenda of all humanity in the future." (quoted from foreword) It also demonstrated "the importance of intangible values for the understanding, emergence and management of the urban heritage, the socio-economic and environmental factors, as well as the consideration of historical cities and urban areas in their broader territorial setting" (P°009).
