Cultural Heritage Management Capacity and Enhanced Biocultural Resilience in High-Value Landscapes

This knowledge café will further strengthen links across the nature-culture divide in protected area management, to bolster biocultural resilience in World Heritage and other high-value landscapes. The proposal builds on the 2008 Barcelona workshop "Bridging the Nature-Culture Divide to Conserve the Diversity of Life". IUCN has a vital interest in integrating approaches to natural and cultural heritage. The initiatives of the IUCN World Heritage Programme and relevant WCPA specialist groups are beginning to get results. Yet work building local and Indigenous cultural heritage management capacity to enhance biocultural resilience remains underdeveloped. This is particularly noticeable in the World Heritage arena, as the number of mixed nominations grows and the inclusion of local and Indigenous management practises is more strongly encouraged by UNESCO. There are significant institutional challenges to overcome if management of such properties ´on the ground´ is to live up to UNESCO´s inclusive ideals. IUCN recognises that the impact of its work on biocultural resilience will be multiplied through strategic alliances with specialists in bodies such as ICCROM and ICOMOS, which are also exploring such issues. It takes a "One Programme" approach to bring together the IUCN´s Secretariat, World Commission on Protected Areas and relevant members with the newly-established International Heritage Group and the ICOMOS International Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management. In discussing Cultural Heritage Management and Enhanced Biocultural Resilience in High-Value Landscapes, the workshop will contribute to the IUCN Programme themes of valuing and conserving biodiversity and sharing nature´s benefits fairly and equitably. The objectives are to share know-how, bridge differences in approach and gain the commitment of stakeholders to take concrete action to produce achievable results of mutual benefit. Gender equity and equality and the representation of global Indigenou
