The project Towards a Nordic-Baltic pilot region for World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism (2012-2014) was initiated by the Nordic World Heritage Foundation (NWHF).

With a practical approach, the project has contributed to tools for assessing and developing sustainable World Heritage tourism strategies with stakeholder involvement and cooperation. A concrete outcome of the pilot project is the proposed Analytical Framework featuring a Sustainable World Heritage Tourism Checklist, applicable across all regions and World Heritage properties and covering issues such as organization and management, monitoring, local communities, environmental issues, and visitor management.
