Recognizing that there can be adverse outcomes arising from the “divided” practices of natural and cultural heritage, ICOMOS and IUCN have jointly initiated Connecting Practice in order to learn about and develop new approaches to the recognition of the interconnected character of the
natural and cultural values within heritage designation and management frameworks. This paper outlines the outcomes of Connecting Practice to date, and the discusses the aims of phase III (2018-2020), which focuses on the natural and cultural systems that can support the resilience of
agricultural and biocultural landscapes.
