SHAFAQNA: In the centre of Iran, a 2500 year old historic city of Yazd is located.

Yazd is the city of high adobe walls, windcatchers (a traditional Persian architectural element for creating natural ventilation in buildings), subterranean canals, known as “qanat” in Persian, and narrow connected alleys. Despite the hot and dry weather of Yazd city, these features have turned it into a great historic city in Iran, worthy of being included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Since new building constructions have negatively impacted on the historic buildings, there is growing concern about excluding Yazd city from UNESCO’s World Heritage List. These new growing buildings have nothing in common with the historic ones. Another major problem for this historic city is long droughts which have caused its beautiful gardens to be negatively impacted and its people to immigrate to other cities gradually.
