Since the 1980s, the promotion of heritage values has gradually become a relevant issue for urban planning. The need to turn the historic centres into areas of development for the market, through legislative measures and investments in infrastructure and services, and the re-evaluation of the heritage value of existing buildings, oscillated between policies which, linked to the mechanisms of economic and cultural globalization, promoted tourism as a source of revenue while striving to find alternatives to gentrification.The goal of this chapter is to gain a better understanding of the major challenges of the rehabilitation of inner areas with heritage values within the framework of ‘innovative’ approaches to urban planning, aiming at promoting sustainable living conditions. The reflexion is based on the comparative and transdisciplinary analysis of the decision-making processes of concrete interventions in different cities of the world: Buenos Aires, La Havana, and Bangkok.

Keywords:   access to the city, decision-making, heritage values, historic centres, innovative planning, sustainable development, urban governance, urban planning, JEL classification, N90
