Abstract

This assessment has been conducted as a result of the implementation of the project for the construction of the Expressway Ohrid‐Peshtani. Specifically, this has been done due to the need for determining the impact that the newly built expressway will have on the social, cultural and natural values of the region. Given the fact that the cultural and natural heritage are an important factor for registering the Ohrid region as a World Heritage Site according to UNESCO, all possible impacts (positive and negative) should be approached with special care. Accordingly, this report is aimed at anticipating and registering such impacts on cultural heritage. The planned expressway is going to be constructed within the boundaries of the protected area by UNESCO. Positive impacts from the construction of the road will be multidimensional. It should be noted that primarily the intra‐ and inter‐regional communication of the area will be increased. Also important is the improvement of the trans‐boundary cooperation between Albania and Macedonia. The sustainable use of all resources located in the region of the protected area would be imperative.
