International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property


The World Heritage Leadership (WHL) programme is a partnership between ICCROM, IUCN, and the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and the Environment, in collaboration with the World Heritage Centre and ICOMOS. As a capacity building programme, it aims to improve conservation and management practices for culture and nature through the work of the 1972 World Heritage Convention, as an integral component of the contribution made to sustainable development by World Heritage sites.

The programme takes a new and transformative approach, not only working within the World Heritage Convention but adopting a wider view of the totality of conservation practice. It considers how World Heritage, through World Heritage sites and the communities and specialists that support them, can provide new and better leadership to achieve and inspire innovation, performance, and excellence in practice.
