In total, UNESCO projects in the UK generate over £150 million of financial benefit to local communities each year.
Embracing Global Geoparks, World Heritage Sites, Biosphere Reserves and Creative Cities these projects help bring together hundreds of local partners to protect and conserve some of the most important places in the country.
The report is the first to examine the cultural, environmental and financial benefits to UK life from these diverse UNESCO projects, and their active contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals. Along with preserving precious landscapes, buildings and archives, UNESCO projects are also leading research on vital issues such as water scarcity, refugee integration, climate change and child literacy.
