Old City of Jerusalem Comprehensive Revitalisation Plan

Welfare Association published the 179 page large-format Arabic language Master Plan for the revitalization of the Old City of Jerusalem, entitled Jerusalem: Heritage and Life, in 2002. An updated English version was published in December 2003. The plan is based on historical, physical, social and economic surveys of the Old City that were carried out by a multi-sector team of Palestinian experts, taking into consideration current political, legal and administrative constraints.

It focuses on the need to preserve and protect the cultural heritage of the Old City, to upgrade its services and utilities, to regenerate the economy and improve the living conditions of its inhabitants.
