Workshop on rehabilitation of historic towns and urban areas - proceedings

Urban rehabilitation of historic areas should be conducted as part of a broader social policy that prioritises the interests of local residents, encouraging reuse of ancient buildings through mixed-use functions and inclusive and more inclusive habitation, as part of an ongoing urban strategy that includes upgrading of local infrastructure and services.
These are some of the recommendations made in the proceedings of the EU-funded Euromed Heritage 4 seminar on “Planning regulations and urban rehabilitation”, held in Rabat in December 2009.
The 178-page report, published in English and French, includes background information, written contributions from participants, a general overview of the current situation in urban rehabilitation in the region as well as the recommendations drawn up by participants. Rabat Proceedings.pdf
