Description

This webinar will take you through the principles and processes that you need to be aware of when conducting impact assessments. Especially when conducting an impact assessment for World Heritage, it is important to base the assessment on the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV), and all other values and attributes of the heritage place.

Adopting a sound impact assessment procedure can help States Parties, heritage managers, decision-makers, communities or others in managing World Heritage properties in circumstances where a transformative action is proposed or undertaken in or around the properties – in particular those related to development projects, resource extraction or mass tourism – which may affect the Outstanding Universal Value of the property.

This webinar will take you through the steps and processes of conducting an impact assessment with various different case studies.
