The ICOMOS/IFLA International Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscape (ISCCL)

The ISCCL was created by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) in partnership with the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) in 1970 and has ever since successfully contributed to ICOMOS.
The main purposes of the ISCCL are:
  • promote worldwide cooperation in the identification, study, education, and training for the management of cultural landscapes;
  • collaborate with ICOMOS, IFLS, and IUCN in regard to combined works of nature and humanity;
  • work with UNESCO World Heritage in assessing, monitoring and advising;
  • undertake collaborative projects with other ICOMOS International Scientific Committees.
ISCCL leads the coordination of the Initiative. Working groups are being created and organized by themes or regions. The Initiative will always be open to new working groups willing to participate. There is also a Scientific and Coordination Secretariat.
lCOMOS Committee - ISCCL is an international cultural association with no funds. Members work on a volunteer basis. Website:
