ICCROM and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre launch a Call for Expressions of Interest for the Evaluation of the UNESCO World Heritage Capacity-Building Strategy (WHCBS)


For the 10th Anniversary of the adoption of the World Heritage Capacity-Building Strategy (2011-2021), the World Heritage Committee, at its extended 44th session (Fuzhou/online, 2021), requested an evaluation of the WHCBS. In particular, the Committee requested “an independent results-based evaluation of the outcomes of the WHCBS, based on close consultation and a participatory, transparent, and inclusive process with the States Parties and other capacity-building stakeholders and beneficiaries, for examination at its 45th session” (Decision 44 COM 6, Para. 11).

The main objectives of the Evaluation are to assess the results of the WHCBS with respect to its goals, as specified in the text of the Strategy, and its contribution to the overall better implementation of the World Heritage Convention and the World Heritage Committee’s Strategic Objectives (”5Cs”), which informed the development of the WHCBS in 2011.
