Abstract (in English)

Although Borobudur has attracted large numbers of tourists after its inscription on the World Heritage list, the local tourism in the area is far from bringing the expected economic benefits to local communities. The paper examines current status of the social and environmental challenges arising from the present management of the heritage tourism and needs to protect and promote the World Heritage site, cultural industries and heritage tourism for the long term sustainability of the local community, while introducing on-going UNESCO’s project at Borobudur which received serious damage by the Mt. Merapi volcanic eruption in October, 2010..
