What are benefits of World Heritage Site?

The first and foremost benefit is that the site gets immediate international recognition, which is a feather in the cap for already protected sites. It boosts tourism. It demonstrates social responsibility. The site can take advantage of network of UNESCO network and partners. There is positive media coverage.
Further, limited funding is associated with World Heritage Status. The World Heritage Committee allocates funding on a priority basis, with a particular focus on the most threatened sites, including those listed as World Heritage in Danger, as well as on properties situated in developing countries.
