Heritage Impact Assessment of Tourism on Lumbini World Heritage Property
Abstract:
Tourism is a key component in the management of World Heritage properties that has negative and positive impacts on the significance and values of a site. Proper visitor management can mitigate negative impacts and enhance the positive aspects for the benefit of the site, generating much needed funds for its conservation and promotion. This Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) examines the impacts of visitors on the significant values of Lumbini World Heritage Site within the context of tourism management and development issues. This report also includes a draft guideline for future HIA in Lumbini. The report outlines the tourism/visitor-related impacts at the Lumbini World Heritage property and the Kenzo Tange Master Plan area. It discusses how on-going and future projects may impact the property and Master Plan Area suggesting mitigation measures for current and potential impacts. The report offers recommendations for Heritage Impact Assessment guidelines included as annex to in this report. These guidelines will be used to assess future projects and initiatives at the Lumbini World Heritage Site, as well as other heritage sites in Nepal. #LUMBINI #LUMBINIHERITAGESITE #HERITAGEIMPACTASSESSMENT

Heritage Impact Assessment of Tourism on Lumbini World Heritage Property
Abstract:
Tourism is one of the most prominent conservation and development issues confronting World Heritage site management. While tourism can cause negative impacts, changing a site’s sense of place, it can provide benefits such as generating funds for unmet conservation costs.The work and the activities being carried out during the preparation of this report, offer an opportunity to examine the Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) exercise within the context of this prominent management and development issue. HIA’s are designed to be carried out as a response to a development proposal or disaster. They provide expert insight, generating a study that informs authorities about the effects of a proposed alteration or development, most frequently an infrastructure project.
