Sustainable Heritage Management - a Matter of National Policies Congruence


  • Gabriel Cristian Sabou



As today’s resources are more and more scarce and valuable, there is a global growing concern for environment protection, cultural identity preservation across nations, social responsibility, all in the context of economic efficiency. Sustainability comes thus as a necessity for more and more economic activities, tourism making no exception from it. The present paper aims to bring in discussion the issue of sustainable heritage management and its implications upon economy in general, and tourism in particular, with a special focus on Romanian mechanisms that may influence it. Also, the paper presents ways of assessing heritage sustainability and their reflection upon the specific socio-economic environment.
