Project ID 537RAF4002

This programme aims at reinforcing the capacities of African heritage experts in order to increase the number of African sites inscribed on the World Heritage List, while ensuring that present and future African World Heritage properties remain in a good state of conservation. With priority given to States Parties with no properties inscribed, the programme built around two components ("Building a base" and "Building sustainability") will focus on inventory, Tentative listing and nomination, while also covering the areas of conservation and management, communication and community/stakeholders engagement for sustainability.
