Project ID 2210524021

To ensure that underwater cultural heritage is identified, protected and sustainably managed in the Pacific, this activity will aim to raise awareness and promote the ratification and effective implementation of the 2001 Convention in Papua New Guinea. The activity will include the elaboration of a gap and national interest analysis that will inform the development of an online training suite of curated informative material. The tailored policy advice will aim to provide a better understanding of the benefits and implications of the UCH Convention in PNG through capacity building, and create synergies with other UNESCO Conventions such as the 1970 Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property.
