A Practical Handbook for Historic Cemeteries in South Asia and Community Engagement


BACSA’s Community Engagement Handbook for Historic Cemeteries in South Asia


BACSA’s Community Engagement Handbook explains how to obtain the support of a historic cemetery’s wider community, and evaluate the site’s specific features, challenges and problems. It includes a Check List and Action Plan to help groups articulate their vision for a cemetery; publicise their proposals; obtain funding; develop a sustainable maintenance plan and future activity programmes. The Handbook closes with Case Studies of five very different, successful projects.
