Seminar paper from the year 2021 in the subject Tourism - Miscellaneous, grade: A2, Obafemi Awolowo University, language: English, abstract: The present study is aimed at evaluating the current state of the management of Idanre Hills with the view to contribute knowledge to the sustainable development of the attraction. The natural landscape of the hills is replete with an abundance of biodiversity and a cultural heritage that has survived for centuries. Today, the Idanre landscape is a preferred destination explored for its benefits (notably environmental, economic and socio-cultural). Being in the tentative list of world heritage site, the stakeholders in accordance with the UNESCO regulation have been tasked with adopting effective management and protection strategies to ensure the development of a sustainable heritage site for the present and future generations amongst other benefits. From analysis of literature, in its current state; some factors were found to constitute barriers to the attainment of high performance in the management of Idanre hills including conflict of interests between members of the Idanre community and the state authority on the subject of management; inadequate financial resources, climate change, lack of political will, poor infrastructure, limited education in tourism destination management amongst others. Various solutions have been proffered concerning effective management and sustainable development of tourism attraction from scholarly works. Meanwhile, it is believed that the recommendations for the assessment of management performance should ultimately be in line with the criteria as specified by the UNESCO for the reason that Idanre hills is in the tentative list of world heritage sites. The outcome of adhering to these management criteria is that consequently, the conditions of integrity of the attraction are sustained or enhanced over a longer period.
