The cultural, social and political values embedded in a city fill it with memory and shape its development. Historical knowledge and experience, according to him, is more vital than technology and methods of preserving the physical structure. Instead of seeing just one building object or a complex, an integrated approach on management of urban sites as well as cultural landscape is very essential. Therefore it is critical to communicate and integrate with one another in our conservation process, which could finally lead to an integral plan to achieve resilience. Common positive driving factors facilitated by communication and knowledge exchange equip us cities with preventive measures to tackle crisis and go through it with a favourable outcome.
