Band-e-Amir National Park
Type: Maps and Graphics|
Duration: January 2003 - on-going
Band-e-Amir is a central component of the ATO’s tourism strategy and that local people will benefit from tourism in the park. Band-e-Amir is also recognized as containing a unique combination of features that meet formal criteria for acceptance as a UNESCO World Heritage Natural Site. Since the Transitional Authority intends to start with a clean legislative slate, the opportunity exists to institute Band-e-Amir as a national park with legislation that reflects current best practices in park management while recognizing and accommodating historical tradition and local needs.
