The ICCROM Programme of Activities and Budget (PAB) for the 2020-2021 biennium has been developed in response to the Strategic Directions established by Council and approved by the General Assembly for 2018-2023.
The PAB is also underpinned by ICCROM’s commitment to the United Nations Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals and ICCROM’s core values.
ICCROM’s Programme of Activities for 2020-2021 are broadly divided into four key components:
Flagship Programmes composed by: (a) First Aid and Resilience for Cultural Heritage in Times of Crisis, (b) World Heritage Leadership - Integrating Nature and Culture and (c) ATHAR – Conservation and Management of Archaeological and Architectural Heritage in the Arab Region;
Prospective Activities which explore new issues and guide the development of future programmes these including two regional programmes for Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as activities linked to sustainability;
Training Partnerships which are largely programmes and activities carried out in collaboration with Member states, and also include long-standing and new collaborations on various topics;
Research and Advice to provide direct services to Member States; and
Strengthening ICCROM, including all actions to keep making ICCROM a more robust and smarter organization.
These components are interconnected, often with crosscutting objectives and goals – this is a reflection of ICCROM’s integrated approach and collaborative nature, as our staff work across several themes. The structure creates opportunities for increased collaborative synergies among the Secretariat, Member States and beyond. The Programme of Activities is fully dependent on ICCROM’s communications, its finance and administration, and fundraising activities, which are described within.
For this PAB, the budget follows a Zero Nominal Growth scenario, with a proposed total budget envelope of EUR 15 894 381, of which Regular Contributions amount to 48.24%, Voluntary Contributions in Hand to 36.52% and Contributions to be fundraised to 15.24 %.
