UNESCO, along with ICCROM, ICOMOS, and IUCN, has released the Enhanced Our Heritage Toolkit 2.0, a comprehensive self-assessment methodology designed to improve the management of World Heritage properties.
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.
