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.
This executive report is based on the comprehensive project report on the pilot project Towards a Nordic-Baltic pilot region for World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism presented by NWHF as a Nordic-Baltic contribution to the UNESCO World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism Programme.
