Project ID 513CUB4000

The "Reef System in the Cuban Caribbean" was inscribed on the World Heritage Tentative List in 2003 and is composed of nine protected areas, one of which, Jardines de la Reina (2,170 km2), is considered the most pristine and natural marine ecosystem in the region. The site has a legal framework for its conservation and management but would benefit substantially from technical training especially in the development of a Statement of its Outstanding Universal Value, the procedure to prepare World Heritage Site nominations and the identification of a list of actions to enhance current conservation to substantiate future nominations.
