Résumé partiel
Lebanon is famously known for its cultural heritage and historic sites inherited through several civilizations that have resided on its territory. Central to the growing industry of tourism specifically in the historic cores of the MENA region, preserving these assets and highlighting their power in promoting local and regional economies has triggered the attraction of various development initiatives. Among these initiatives was the Cultural Heritage and Urban Development projects (CHUD). CHUD projects were introduced in Lebanon in 2003 to help restore and conserve the cultural heritage of its five main historic cores namely Baalbek, Jbeil, Saida, Tripoli and Tyre. Their main objective was to lay the conditions for promoting economic development and promoted quality of life for host communities. This being achieved through revitalized historic cores with an enhanced attractive power to house more visitors. In order to validate whether these developments have succeeded or failed in their contribution, this research takes into focus the impact of CHUD projects between 2009 and 2017 on Tyre’s local community as a case study. It articulates both socio-cultural and economic impact on the Community Well-Being (CWB) of local residents, an essential domain in the quality of life studies.
