New project announced for Renewable Energy Transition and World Heritage

The promotion of renewable energy production is of great importance, as this technology is among the key solutions for the mitigation of climate change and the promotion of sustainable development. The number of renewable energy installation projects in all the regions of the World Heritage Convention is currently rising. The increasing number of related conservation issues raises a demand for an effective guidance tool providing methods to mitigate the possible negative impacts of such projects.

the World Heritage Centre launched an initiative to develop, in collaboration with States Parties in the Europe and North America region of the World Heritage Convention, an effective Guidance Tool, providing methods to avoid and mitigate the possible negative impacts of renewable energy projects on World Heritage properties.
