International Cultural Heritage Law

Chapter 4 addresses the intimate and frequently mutual relationship that exists between the cultural and natural heritage. In order to understand this relationship better, the shared norms and approaches in cultural heritage and environmental law are considered including, inter alia, their character as non-renewable resources, the notion of common heritage, sustainability and integration, and inter-generation equity. Some of the most relevant cultural heritage and environmental law is analysed to draw out more clearly these practical, philosophical, and legal linkages. The UNESCO 1972 World Heritage and 2003 on Intangible Cultural Heritage Conventions and their implementation are examined in detail. Two illustrative cases are presented: (1) the relationship between cultural diversity, biological diversity, and environmental sustainability; and (2) how cultural heritage law may contribute towards mitigating and even preventing climate change.

Keywords:   natural environment, cultural and natural heritage, sustainability and integration, world heritage, intangible heritage, cultural and biological diversity, climate change
