On 20 June 2018, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between WHITRAP Shanghai and the South East Region (Kumitat Regjonali Xlokk) in Malta for the implementation of the UNESCO Historic Urban Landscape Recommendation. Since then, the South East Region of Malta becomes a new pilot case of the WHITRAP HUL Pilot Cities Programme. This MOU was based on a Process Map (compiled by Dr Malcolm Borg in consultation with the South East Region, its President Chev. Paul Farrugia and WHITRAP Asia). The main objective to implement HUL at this moment and launch the South East Region as Pilot Case is to develop further the HUL application through diagnostic and sustainability tools in an integrated framework, which may rich the experience of HUL application, especially in a high-density site with a high concentration of World Heritage Sites.
THE SOUTH EAST REGION is now member of the LEAGUE OF HISTORICAL CITIES. The application was accepted in late 2015 after SERC presented an evaluation report and its South East Action Plan. The League of Historcial Cities (LHC) was established in Kyoto, Japan in 1987. It holds a biennial world conference and provides cities from different cultures with a platform for bilateral cooperation and mutual learning. The League also acts as a think tank for bilateral cooperation and best practices.It is in partnership with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme, International Council on Monuments and Sites and the Organization of World Heritage Cities.
