This training dealt the theoretical and hands on training of Integrated Heritage Conservation covering modules like theory of integrated conservation, conservation practices in Nepal, international heritage treaties and charters, heritage legislation in Nepal and tourism policy. Under the practical work, Bungamati was taken as a field site and participants mapped the historic structure and current functions of Bungamati.
Mr. Jean-Paul Corten, expert in Urban Heritage Strategies, of I.H.S. Netherlands was a lead trainer for this training. Similarly, Ms. Jharana Joshi, Mr. Prakash Darnal, Mr. Stephen Clark and Mr. Hector Martin delivered as guest lectures.
