What being a UNESCO site means

All the properties included in the World Heritage List must be protected in the long term by adequate laws, regulations, and institutional measures/traditional practices for their conservation and management, in order to guarantee their tutelage.

A document that explains clearly the protective measures provided is attached to the site nomination request: the Management Plan.

All stakeholders are required to safeguard World Heritage Sites by adherence to basic strategic objectives designed to ensure a correct equilibrium between conservation, sustainability and development, in order that World Heritage properties may be adequately protected by activities that contribute to the socio-economic growth and quality of life of the communities in which they are located; by following communication, education, research, training and awareness-building strategies; and by endeavouring to involve the various tiers of local government in the tutelage and management of World Heritage properties.
