Abstract (in English)

The Commentary on Nature-Culture Keywords aims to be a resource for heritage practitioners and researchers who are working in the interdisciplinary field that links natural and cultural heritage conservation. The document began with the intention to compile a brief glossary of terms and concepts that have emerged in implementing the Connecting Practice project. The Connecting Practice project is a joint exploration by IUCN and ICOMOS that aims to develop new approaches to heritage designation and management that recognise the interconnectedness of natural and cultural values. ‘Biocultural’, ‘resilience’ and ‘traditional knowledge’ are the ‘keyword families’ explored here which were selected as the most relevant within the recent work of the Connecting Practice project. This document has been developed by ICOMOS, based on inputs from many contributors. The foundations of this Commentary are provided by relevant international organisations and academic texts. To clarify the different applications of these keywords in natural and cultural heritage conservation, relevant doctrinal and guidance texts have been reviewed. The Commentary does not presume to be complete, but instead, to be a ‘work in progress’ that could be useful for heritage practitioners working with an interdisciplinary language. This version of the Commentary has been edited from the original version published as Annex 6 of the Final Report of Phase III.
