Assessment of Area Conservation in Historic Cairo

Show Summary Details

Preview

To measure the quality of a conservation scheme and its impact on a historic area, the most important questions are what it aims to conserve, and how it does so. Assessment of area conservation in Cairo must cover environmental qualities as well as policies. To assess area conservation in Historic Cairo, multiple methods are combined to increase the validity of the data. The main subjects of the investigation are the institutions and officials who possess the main power and responsibility in Egypt's state-centered system of planning. The comprehensive assessment model is applied to each agent or actor possessing or claiming rights in any part of the historic area that has undergone conservation.
