In the walled City, commercial encroachment showed a pattern of abuse of building stock through small-scale industries and use of space for storage. From the multiple challenges facing the walled city since 1947, there are challenges in the choices of developments as to care for the needs of the resident population and envision the role of the commercial sector. The need for progress measurement, data collection and data are recognized, while first indications of progress were made in the Shahi Guzargah project in hygiene and cleanliness.

Stressing the comparative advantage of heritage districts, this section makes a point it will need to have better urban services provided on its edges and in its wider context. The need to better connect the historic city with the modern city is recognized of mutual interest. The main vectors for urban conservation and redevelopment can be summarized as urban surveys that document with precision the existing, focus on carefully delineated ‘urban clusters’, use of incremental urban redevelopment, prototyping, infrastructure investments and the conceptualization of zones of special value. Other longer term vectors include the establishment of new centers of urban design and research, training programs for aspiring urban and architectural conservation professionals and archaeologists and digital platforms for municipal networks and services.
