The acceleration in pace, volume, and scale of construction projects requires increased attention and rapid action by cultural heritage proponents. In the face of this challenge, individuals, organizations, and institutions responsible for cultural heritage must evolve from mere custodians of the past to become an integral part of the modern construct for socioeconomic development and environmental management. This chapter explores the relationship between environmental protection and economic development and emphasizes the need for international attention to promote the concept of a holistic approach to the management of the planetary environment. It also discusses the significance of environmental impact assessment using a variety of technical tools. It highlights the role of the World Bank Group and its policies in incorporating cultural heritage (also termed cultural property or cultural resources) into its requirements for safeguarding the environment.
