Learn from these projects summaries and connect with the authors for more information.

One very good training element for cultural landscape preservation is to have access to project summaries that are comparable to the undertaking being considered. This part of the IFLA CLC website is a collection of best practice project summaries. They are organized in a series of topics that address the landscape type and/or the project type. We encourage you to write up a Best Practices summary and participate in this process of sharing. The submittal form is included here and in other Best Practices sections (WORD and PDF document).
