The purpose of the ISCCL is to promote world-wide cooperation in the identification, increased awareness, study, education and training for protection, preservation, restoration, monitoring, and management of cultural landscapes. The ISCCL collaborates and works with the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA), with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and with the UNESCO (in regard to World Heritage).

Cultural Landscapes: A practical guide for park management, State of NSW and Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water NSW, October 2010

The publication was prepared for protected area managers to guide them in the implementation of a ‘cultural landscape approach’. The approach draws on the Australia ICOMOS Burra Charter approach and NSW heritage system. The method described in the publication can be applied to any cultural landscape study.
