Project ID 2210532021

Following the review of national measures to protect culture in times of conflict, which was carried out in 2021 in the framework of periodic reporting on implementation of the UNESCO 1954 Convention and its 2 protocols, and which revealed the need for capacity building in the protection of Cultural property, this activity aims to increase capacities among female military personnel to effectively protect cultural property, including World Heritage properties in the Eastern Africa Region. UNESCO will provide targeted military training for female military personnel in the protection of cultural property based upon the guidance of the UNESCO 1954 Convention and mobilizing the wide network of UNESCO and AU partners in the region.
