CIVVIH – Historic Towns & Villages

International Committee on Historic Towns & Villages

The International Committee on Historic Towns and Villages (CIVVIH) was established in 1982. The Committee deals with questions relevant to the planning and management of historic cities, towns and urban areas. Its membership is made of experts who have different professional backgrounds related to historic town preservation and urban planning issues. They come from ICOMOS member countries all over the world to share their knowledge and experience with colleagues practicing in the field. CIVVIH prepared the document titled “The Valletta Principles for the Safeguarding and Management of Historic Cities, Towns and Urban Areas”, which was adopted at the l7th ICOMOS General Assembly in Paris in 2011.
