Conservation of Architecture, Urban Areas, Nature & Landscape: Toward a Sustainable Survival of Cultural Landscape
Built and natural environments are ultimately and collectively tangible records of history and as “heritage” belong to time. Conservation, in its broadest sense, is concerned with the assessment of these environments in order to make it relevant for the present and ensure its survival in the future. At present, different legislative bodies are involved in promoting the conservation of the built and natural environments with minimal consideration of the interconnections between the two areas of conservation.

Conference of the Global Catchment Initiative (GCI) "The Global Dimensions of Change in River Basins - Threats, Linkages and Adaptation" 6-8 December 2010
An important new insight in river basin research and management is that water in its various forms "operates" in complex social, ecological and economic sectors forming an interlinked system of a much larger scale than an individual river basin or large aquifer. This new awareness of interconnectivities has spawned the concept of the "global water system", which in return bears important implications for upcoming research. Focus will need to move beyond river basins to seek sustainable solutions within the context of the global water system.
