The Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) and ICOMOS International, in collaboration with ICCROM, IUCN, UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities in Egypt, are organising a Capacity Building Programme for World Heritage Professionals in the Arab region.
This programme aims to build a strong network of experts from the Arab region that will assist the Arab States, the Advisory Bodies, and all World Heritage stakeholders in the effective implementation of the 1972 World Heritage Convention.
The Strengthening Capacities of World Heritage Professionals in the Arab Region for Cultural and Natural Sites, in English, will be held from 29 January to 2 February 2023 in Aswan, Arab Republic of Egypt.
The workshop will approach the implementation of the World Heritage Convention in the different types of heritage existing in the Arab region and will take into account regional specificities. The workshop will also explore the concepts and tools in use under this Convention. It will provide an opportunity to learn how the Advisory Bodies are working on State of Conservation reports and evaluation of nominations, and participants will be required to submit a report following the workshop.
