Heritage Development and Management Strategic Plan 2003-2007.
The Heritage Policy is "to conserve Zambia's natural and cultural heritage for sustainable utilization and appreciation by the public, in order to significantly
contribute to improvement of the quality of life of rural communities where heritage is located and to the growth of the national economy". The policy's guiding principles recognise the importance of public-private partnership,
with the government creating conducive environment for private sector investment. A further principle recognises that heritage assets should be considered as an integral part of the resources belonging to local communities and that therefore, their management should be community based.
