Planning Holistically to Conserve Natural and Cultural Heritage
Jonathan M. Kohl and Stephen F. McCool

Heritage sites write many management plans, including interpretive. Yet all confront challenges to implementation, especially when developed with a purely technical mindset. This book explores the crisis that has globally enveloped the 210,000+ UN-listed protected natural and cultural heritage sites to understand the roots of plan failure. It argues that deeper causes to current problems lurk in the planning discipline itself. Kohl and McCool, then, define a more integrated approach called Holistic Planning, whose principles include community participation, learning, continuous planning, social capital building, and heritage interpretation.
