Based on the on society resulting from the current challenges, it is argued that experts need competencies in dealing with uncertainty and tolerance of ambiguity in order to provide security of action.

The article titled, "Agility in Cultural Heritage Management—Advancing Competence Within Uncertainty as a Sustainable and Resilient Adaptation to Processes of Dynamic Change," applies insights from multiple disciplines to urban environment studies and advocates for a systemic understanding of cultural heritage as a prerequisite for sustainable and resilient adaptation to current challenges.
