This paper presents new approaches to formulate the concept ?sustainable conservation?. It is based on the theoretical framework of integrated conservation based on its physical-material and social-cultural dimensions, that has been developed in an international context.
The conservation projects discussed in this paper can be described as sustainable preservation, or conservation. The empirical platform of this paper is a major building conservation scheme carried out during the period 1993 ? 2003 in the Halland region in Sweden, and its development in parallel in international context.
The paper also discusses the strategic use of investments in conservation of the cultural built heritage in an instrumental way as a catalyst for sustainable development and regional growth as well as the impact of this approach on the quality of conservation.
In this theory-based analysis methodologies developed the professional and research area in conservation and sustainable development has been used.
