Portuguese version of "Managing Natural World Heritage"


This Resource Manual has a specific purpose: helping to manage natural1 values within World Heritage properties. As such it is aimed at natural and mixed World Heritage properties as well as cultural landscapes (inscribed under cultural criteria). The intention is to help managers understand and incorporate World Heritage concepts and processes into natural site management. It is hoped that all natural World Heritage managers and staff will find useful guidance here and will be inspired to explore the many resources highlighted. Many of the management principles described will apply to any type of protected area, but here special emphasis is given to those management considerations most relevant to World Heritage status.

This Resource Manual is part of the World Heritage Resource Manual Series originally published by ICCROM in collaboration with the World Heritage Centre, ICOMOS and IUCN.

The Portuguese version of this work was a priority for Lúcio Costa Centre (CLC) / IPHAN as part of the strategy for its consolidaton as a reference centre dedicated to the development of a set of training activities – research, capacity building and dissemination – in order to promote professional competence and knowledge sharing among the countries of the Southern Hemisphere and the UNESCO partners.
