Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a recommendation concerning the safeguarding of the beauty and character of landscapes and sites, adopted by the General Conference of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Paris, 11 December 1962. Member States should bring this recommendation to the attention of the authorities and bodies concerned with the protection of landscapes and sites and with regional development, and of bodies entrusted with the protection of nature and the development of the tourist trade, together with youth organizations. In safeguarding the beauty and character of landscapes and sites, allowance should also be made for the dangers resulting from certain forms of work and certain activities of present-day life, by reason of the noise which they occasion. General supervision should be exercised over works and activities likely to damage landscapes and sites throughout the whole territory of the State.
