Responsibility for World Heritage in Norway

The Ministry of The Environment has overall responsibility for World Heritage in Norway. The Directorate for Cultural Heritage and The Directorate for Nature Management have professional responsibility in accordance with respective laws. However, it should be emphasised that responsibility for World Heritage supersedes departmental boundaries and responsibility lies within the work area of several different sectors of government. For example, The Ministry of Culture and Church Affairs has a responsibility for arrangement s in museums and The Ministry of Trade and Industry has a responsibility for the development of tourism with World Heritage as a leading light.
