Conference Najaf My Identity 2013 comes in order to formulate a management list to keep the heritage and urban identity of the holy city of Najaf, which includes a set of standards that would save the urban patterns in the old city and highlight its distinctive civilization. This management list has been formulated based on international charters on urban heritage and religious cities, which have been prepared by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The preservation of the identity of Najaf is done through three basic themes: Keep all the heritage places of the city of Najaf, with its sense of the patterns of urban and distinctive heritage, and maintain it from erosion and extinction, and in accordance with the international standards; The development of standards and regulations that govern the process of designing buildings to be built in the old city of Najaf and in line with the features and patterns inherent architectural and heritage of the city; and Preserving the traditional renewable energy systems and sustainability principles in the heritage buildings of the old city of Najaf, and collect, disseminate and promote research in the area of energy conservation and sustainable development in those buildings.
In order to succeed all these efforts, the organizer of the conference was keen to invite all stakeholders in this regard; Iraqi and international experts, academics, decision-makers in the government and local executive bodies associated with them, community figures, and activists citizens of the city. We hope that this management list will be model regulations in order to preserve the identity of all Iraqi cities.
