Complete Title: 
Guidance and toolkit for impact assessments in a World Heritage context
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

As the World Heritage Convention celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022, over 1100 sites around the world are recognized as World Heritage - placesĀ  that are so valuable to humanity that there conservation has been deemed our collective responsibility. Yet many of these exceptional places faceĀ  increasing pressure from diverse types of development projects within and around the sites. Assessing the impacts of such projects is essential to both prevent damage to World Heritage and identify sustainable options. This Guidance and toolkit explains the process for achieving these goals. Offering practical tips and tools including checklists and a glossary, it provides a framework for conducting impact assessments for cultural and natural heritage sites.
