The UNESCO World Heritage List contains the 900 most treasured Sites of humanity’s
culture and landscapes. This List is beneficial where heritage sites are undetected, disregarded
by national decision-makers, not commercially exploitable, and where national financial
resources, political control and technical knowledge for conservation are inadequate.
Alternatives such as the market and reliance on national conservation list are more beneficial
where the cultural and natural sites are already popular, markets work well, and where
inclusion in the List does not raise the destruction potential by excessive tourism, and in times
of war, or by terrorists.
