The fast changing urban landscape in Armenia and cultural heritage protection policies in Moldova are among the topics discussed in the second issue of the regional e-magazine Heritage Conservation, which is now available online. The publication is produced under the EU funded project Regional Co-operation for Cultural Heritage Development (RCCHD), which is part of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme.

The current issue focuses on the cultural heritage policy dimension, “which is a vivid evidence that this is a common acute problem within the region,” a press release said, adding that the EaP (Eastern Partnership) countries are still in the process of transition, moving along a bumpy road towards a better environment as far as the architectural heritage is concerned.

The €12 million Eastern Partnership Culture Programme aims at assisting the Partner Countries in their cultural policy reform at government level, as well as capacity building and improving professionalism of cultural operators in the region. It seeks to strengthen regional cultural links and dialogue within the Eastern Partnership region, and between the EU and ENP Eastern countries’ cultural networks and actors.
