On September 13th, WHUK and ICOMOS-UK jointly present a webinar that explains the aims, methods and benefits of HIAs for cultural World Heritage sites.
New Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) guidance for UNESCO World Heritage sites has recently been published. It can be found here.
This webinar series explains methods/processes, obligations, benefits, scales, and timings of HIAs in the context of identifying sustainable options for cultural World Heritage sites.
