Abstract

Cultural landscapes represent the interface between nature and culture and exist due to the complex interactions between people and the environment over time. Since 1992, the World Heritage Committee has recognised 'cultural landscapes' as a category of site within the Convention's Operational Guidelines. This addition marked a new approach that recognises the linkages between natural and cultural diversity, and acknowledges traditional and local management systems as appropriate forms of protection for globally significant heritage (Rössler, 2005). Eight-six properties, including five trans-boundary properties and one de-listed property have now been included as Cultural Landscapes on the World Heritage List.
