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

Background reading added for Knowledge Cafe 0092

This knowledge cafe is not exclusively about World Heritage but a mildly-provocative paper on World Heritage management has been uploaded help set the scene for discussion.

The paper addresses the gulf between natural and cultural World Heritage management, which remains as wide in the Asia-Pacific region as it does right around the world. This situation obtains from the top to the bottom of the World Heritage system and persists despite the now well-worn arguments against it and despite continual if still somewhat fitful efforts to find a remedy. Taking a broad view of what we call ‘management’ to encompass everything upstream, during and downstream of a World Heritage nomination, this paper discusses the background to the issue, the current positions on the matter of UNESCO, ICOMOS and IUCN, and what might be done at both the institutional level and on the ground to help find a concrete solution in the near future.
