Published by the Intl' Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and the World Tourism Organisation (WTO) this 2nd edition is devoted to helping the managers of World Heritage Sites accomplish a dual purpose: to conserve the site given to their care and to provide meaningful and considerate access to visitors at the sites. This handbook underscores the assumption that conservation must preceed tourism. It recommends a plan of action that would help conserve the sites for future generations, while allowing access and appreciation for the present generation. Includes: Maps of cultural and natural sites on the World Heritage List, the ICOMOS Charter on Cultural Tourism; and 6 case studies.
