The project evaluation component provided the opportunity for GCI staff to meet periodically with the OWHC Board to discuss the issues that concern World Heritage Cities. On the basis of these discussions, the GCI identified the conservation issues that it can address with its resources and in partnership with other institutions and municipalities.

The project evaluation component examined the possibility for the OWHC to adapt a model approach for all its future World Symposia and Congresses. This approach entails selected conservation experts and mayors presenting issues of common interest that are then discussed by all the participants. The approach also includes the pre-conference mayors' workshop, an introduction to conservation in historic cities for newly elected mayors and officials.
