Continuing Cultural Landscape

The UNESCO Operational guidelines recognise a category of Cultural Landscape described as "Organically Evolved". Such a landscape "results from an initial social, economic, administrative, and/or religious imperative and has developed its present form by association with and in response to its natural environment. Such landscapes reflect that process of evolution in their form and component features. It further recognises 2 subcategories of such landscapes "Relict" and "Continuing". A continuing landscape is one which retains an active social role in contemporary society closely associated with the traditional way of life, and in which the evolutionary process is still in progress. At the same time it exhibits significant material evidence of its evolution over time.
