The mechanism of the Carpathian Heritage Inventory


Recommendations for the creation and administration of the Carpathian Heritage Inventory

Each state is responsible for the process of proposing, approving, monitoring and labelling the heritage items. It can set up an independent body or a regional commission for this purpose.

Anyone (an individual or an organization) can propose items to be included in the Carpathian Heritage Inventory.

Consequently, proposals should be approved by the council (or other independent body consisting of experts, local leaders, and other governmental and non-governmental stakeholders). The council should be a free and flexible platform. The main task of the council is to make sure that the proposal meets the set criteria and principles.

The items are approved at least once in 3 months (by email) and are discussed at a larger forum, ideally at stakeholders meetings held at the national level regularly (preferably once a year). Carpathian Convention National Focal Point (CC NFP) may take into consideration the councils’ activities, and serve as an information channel between all participants. CC NFP may recommend and mediate financial support for certain sites, clarified by Council of Experts as a priority for support, including both national and international resources.

The Inventory is created with “bottom-up” approach - which means that it is proposed and/or accepted by local communities and co-created by stakeholders of the Carpathian Convention. The role of local leaders with precise knowledge of local conditions and interest in heritage protection is crucial.

Each item shall include the contact information (an individual or an organisation “responsible” for it). Interdisciplinary approach and cooperation with experts and organisations active in the field of heritage protection and related fields representing both the public and the private sector are most welcome.
The list of data which is being collected for each item can be found in section Categories.
