UNESCO Commends Commitment of Cambodia to build up Urban Heritage Preservation

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has highly hailed Cambodia's commitment to strengthen urban heritage preservation. The commendation came after Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday issued a circular on preventing the demolition and destruction of heritage buildings in the kingdom, aiming at strengthening heritage conservation and sustainable development.

The UN agency  statement released on Friday reads: "Urban heritage, including its tangible and intangible components, constitutes a key resource in enhancing the liveability and resilience of urban areas, and fosters economic development and social cohesion in a changing environment." It also set out recommendations to prevent destruction and any form of modification, alternation or damage to the appearance of urban heritage buildings. Cambodia has a long-standing record for its endeavours on cultural conservation, and this circular will further fortify the balance between urban growth and sustainable development, and reaffirm Cambodia's commitment to Sustainable Development Goal 11, highlighting the importance of cultural and natural heritage for making safe and resilient cities," the UNESCO said. 

The circular will also promote the universal respect for cultural rights for all through the restoration and preservation of cultural heritage, it added.
