Summary: Economic development creates the foundation for better, healthier lives. But when it is badly planned or too rapid, it can damage a nations cultural fabric. The destruction of cultural heritage - ancient sites, historic buildings, natural wonders, languages, and customs - is a loss to the world as well as to the people most immediately affected, and often it is not inevitable. This essay tells how archaeologists, architects, politicians, historians, nongovernmental organizations, government officials, and international bodies are struggling to save cultural heritage. It focuses on the work to preserve Roman mosaics in Paphos on the island of Cyprus and to restore the Old Walled City of Lahore in Pakistan.
