The Consultancy for Conservation and Development specialises in projects which link the conservation cultural and natural heritage with human development and poverty alleviation.  It has provided experts and served as a partner in international joint ventures and consortia for the implementation of projects, funded by donors which have included UNDP, UNESCO, the World Bank, the European Union and the governments of Denmark , Japan , the Netherlands and Norway .

In addition, the Consultancy has specific experience in project design and resource mobilisation on behalf of local partners and welcomes approaches from authorities and NGOs who have project concepts for which they seek funding.

The following are a small selection of the development projects which have been implemented or prepared;  others are in active preparation:

 

Lalitpur, Nepal :  A two-year project for improved urban management and economic diversification through tourism development in the World Heritage city of Lalitpur was designed and implemented for Chester City Council in partnership with the Municipality of Feltre , with funding provided by the European Union’s Asia Urbs Programme.

Archaeological site of Pere, Turkey:  the consultancy assisted the Governorship of Adiyaman to prepare a project for Pere, a Commagene- and Roman-period site where many new rock-cut tombs have recently been discovered.  This will provide the province with a second important archaeological site, in addition to the Nemrut World Heritage Site, and will encourage longer visitor stays and consequently increase tourism income.  

The Citadel of Erbil, Iraq, stands on a 26-metre high archaeological tel representing an estimated 7,000 years of human occupation.  The site therefore represents the earliest development or urban life, which commenced in the Fertile Crescent in the Neolithic period.  In 2004, we developed a proposal for a conservation management plan, which would be linked to the reversal of destruction of some buildings during the regime of Saddam Hussein, the development of tourist facilities and the nomination of the site to the UNESCO World Heritage List.  In June 2008, UNESCO signed a contract with us to prepare the management plan.  One of the unique features of the Citadel is that it has no city wall – the defenses consist of the outside walls of the outer ring of Ottoman-period houses

Donors conferences have been organised on behalf of UNDP and UNESCO in Armenia (inaugurated by the Prime Minister and the Director-General of UNESCO), Nepal (inaugurated by the Prime Minister) and Vietnam .  For each, a portfolio of projects was prepared and presented to donors.
