Abstract (in English)

Recent policy and conceptual developments in World Heritage, and in conservation generally, set the stage for new approaches that engage indigenous and local communities in World Heritage. The inclusion of communities as one of the five Strategic Objectives in the World Heritage Convention reflects an increasing demand for community engagement at all stages of the World Heritage process, and for rights-based approaches that link conservation and sustainable development. [...] This publication provides guidelines, illustrated with case-studies. Recognizing the importance of community engagement throughout the life of a World Heritage site, it considers all stages of the World Heritage process. It reflects on lessons learned, discusses the application of the methodology in new settings and offers recommendations going forward. World Heritage Paper 40 was launched in mid-November 2014 at the World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. This publication was prepared in collaboration with the UNDP/GEF Small Grants Programme and was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Government of Spain (AECID) and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands.
