Algeria – Kasbah of Algiers

The World Heritage Centre and the Ministry of Culture of Algeria will organize from 20 to 24 January 2018 in Algiers an International Expert Meeting on the Conservation and Revitalisation of the Kasbah of Algiers, a World Heritage property, which was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1982.

The meeting aims to address key issues related to the conservation and management of the site in order to propose an integrated and coordinated approach to the revitalization of the Kasbah. It will take stock of international case studies presenting issues similar to those of the Kasbah of Algiers in order to build on different processes of conservation and revitalization of historic urban centers. An inaugural cultural event is scheduled on 20 January 2017, with the theme “The Kasbah of Algiers in contemporary Algerian history through literature, painting and music”.

This meeting is part of UNESCO’s contribution to the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for SDG 11 on sustainable cities and communities, and its target 4 on strengthening efforts to protect and preserve the world’s cultural and natural heritage.
