A set of specific processes and activities related to management planning process of World Heritage Sites has been initiated in the frame of Working Package 3 – Cross-border Sustainable Management of the Adriatic UNESCO Sites of the EX.PO AUS project, coordinated by Centre for Conservation and Archaeology of Montenegro.

The assessment was based on an informative grid prepared by Centre for Conservation and Archaeology of Montenegro and filled in by EX.PO AUS project partners. The analysis of this material is presented in the “Cross-border Report on Management of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the Adriatic”, which can be downloaded from Documents section (on the bottom left).

Furthermore, the assessment of the management effectiveness of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the Adriatic was also conducted. Starting from the existing models for the assessing management effectiveness, it was decided for the process of assessing of pilot areas within the EX.PO AUS project to use as a starting point the methodology developed in the “Enhancing our Heritage Toolkit - Assessing management effectiveness of natural World Heritage sites”.  Two tools from the “Enhancing our Heritage Toolkit” have been tested within the project, a questionnaire was prepared based on them, distributed to project partners and analized.  During the implementation of project in 2014-2015 the Cycle II of UNESCO Periodic Reporting for Europe and North America was finished, which contains reports from the WH Sites included in the EX.PO AUS project. In order to obtain a complete picture, the data on monitoring from the UNESCO Periodic Reporting were also analyzed.  The report “Assessing and monitoring the management effectiveness of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the Adriatic” can be downloaded from Documents section (on the bottom left).
