      The book also seeks to examine the extent to which site management plans have been or are being implemented at Cultural World Heritage Sites. The prevention principle Although much environmental legislation is drafted in response to catastrophespreventing environmental harm is cheaper, easier, and less environmentally dangerous than reacting to environmental harm that already has taken place. These principles, though recognised by the international community, and in the absence of judicial decisions, opened a floodgate of conflicting interpretations making it difficult to determine their actual legal status.
