What are the benefits of a World Heritage listing, and how can it be used as a key vector for sustainable development and cultural cohesion?
Professor Amareswar Galla explores these questions, using World Heritage Site, Ha Long Bay (Vietnam) as a case study to show how diverse people can together reap the benefits from a UNESCO World Heritage listing – including investment, jobs and economic partnerships.
The Hawke Centre and the Mt Lofty Ranges World Heritage bid will co-present two sessions in the coming months which will examine UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Speakers will explore what makes a World Heritage Site unique, special and globally important, and what are the social, cultural and economic benefits?
These events coincide with the Mt Lofty Ranges World Heritage Bid – which proposes World Heritage Site status for the agricultural landscapes of the Mount Lofty Ranges. If successful, up to 150,000 hectares from the Fleurieu Peninsula to the Barossa Valley will be protected and promoted globally for its heritage, culture and agricultural sites.
