A World Heritage Strategy for Capacity Building (UNESCO 2011) was adopted by the World Heritage Committee at its thirty‐fifth session in 2011, and a program to achieve its objectives is being undertaken by its developers – UNESCO, through the World Heritage Centre, and the three Advisory Bodies (ICCROM, ICOMOS, IUCN). In line with the holistic approach taken by the World Heritage Convention (1972), the capacity‐building strategy covers both cultural and natural heritage. It focuses on capacity‐building, a concept that subsumes the education and training of individual practitioners, but extends beyond practitioners to cover the wider audience that is, or should be, engaged in the heritage conservation process.
And searching questions are being asked: What are the costs of heritage protection? Is it economically sustainable? Is heritage a luxury, appropriate in advanced Western postindustrial societies but not in poorer societies? We seem to live in an age in which heritage is ubiquitous (Harrison 2013: 3). Is there too much heritage? Have we gone too far? Is it time to start limiting heritage preservation programs, even the concept itself? And if so, in what ways? Limiting Heritage With more than 1000 sites inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List at the close of 2014, is there a case for the list to be capped in the light of limited and – in real terms – diminishing funds to sustain them?
The anniversary was celebrated under the theme of “sustainable development and the role of communities,” reflecting recognition of significant problems in this area of governance, as well as the ties between cultural preservation and economic welfare. Heritage is arguably central to social needs and to the preservation of communities in the face of developments that can compromise, and sometimes destroy, social fabric and community cohesion. Keir Reeves and Gertjan Plets (Chapter 14), examining this wider context of heritage, argue that considering tangible and intangible heritage together offers a valuable way of understanding the relevance of heritage to social needs, and especially to social cohesion.
