UNESCO and the Advisory Bodies to the World Heritage Committee - ICCROM, ICOMOS and IUCN - have released a newly revised toolkit for assessing the effectiveness of management systems of World Heritage properties. Enhancing Our Heritage Toolkit 2.0 offers a World Heritage-specific methodology of management effectiveness assessment that can be applied to cultural, natural and mixed sites.
The new Toolkit provides a globally tested self-assessment methodology to support World Heritage managers and actors to evaluate management effectiveness in a World Heritage property or other heritage place. It supports site managers in identifying ways to improve conservation practices, management processes and resource allocation, particularly if used before reviewing or updating management plans.
This resource has been made possible by the financial support of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment.
Based on the Enhancing our Heritage Toolkit (2008) originally developed in partnership with the IUCN
World Commission on Protected Areas.
