DocumentsFinal Report: Joint cross-border approach to sustainable management of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the Adriatic
This “Final Report: Joint cross-border approach to sustainable management of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the Adriatic” has been produced within the project EX.PO AUS (EXtension of Potentiality of Adriatic UNESCO Sites), a cross-border project co-financed by the EU within the IPA Adriatic CBC Programme 2007–2013.
The general objective of the EX.PO AUS project is to set up a network between the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Adriatic Sea area (including sites on the Tentative List or those planning to apply for inclusion on this list), which will be able to develop in a cross-border context, and diffuse high-quality technical and managerial competences by means of the various public and private actors involved, with the aim of pursuing a joint long-term strategy for the sustainable development of the sites based on high levels of managerial, technological and energy-related innovation. One of the specific objectives of the EX.PO AUS project is cross-border development of the concept and tools for sustainable management of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
A set of specific processes and activities related to the management of World Heritage Sites were implemented in the framework of Working Package 3 – Cross-border Sustainable Management of the Adriatic UNESCO Sites, coordinated by the Centre for Conservation and Archaeology of Montenegro.
The activities implemented within this Working Package include: assessing the condition of management plans and general management issues for the World Heritage Sites involved in the project; developing a joint cross-border approach to sustainable development of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Adriatic area; organizing a series of nine seminars/workshops on the preparation and implementation of management plans; assessing the effectiveness of management through the drawing up and actual testing of a checklist and indicators and preparation of the publication “Management planning of UNESCO World Heritage Sites – Guidelines for the development, implementation and monitoring of management plans – with the examples of Adriatic WHSs” in the languages of all seven countries participating in the EX.PO AUS project.
Activities within the Working Package 3 were realized in cooperation between the Centre for Conservation and Archaeology of Montenegro and EXPEDITIO Centre for Sustainable Spatial Development, Kotor, Montenegro, engaged as external experts to implement these activities.
This Final Report is a result of the activities implemented within the Working Package 3.
