A World Heritage Leadership Programme Activity took place at ICCROM from 4 to 6 September 2018.
The Advisory Bodies Networking Activity provided a capacity building opportunity to the Advisory Bodies experts who are involved in the evaluation and monitoring missions of various sites, to exchange knowledge and newly developed ideas for effective management of heritage, which could be applied when undertaking their missions. It also provided a chance for nature and culture professionals to network and share ideas on effective management of heritage.
The promoted approach focuses on the interconnected biocultural character of natural, cultural and social values at heritage sites, and also takes into consideration the wider landscape of the heritage place. The group also discussed ideas of improving working methods of the Advisory Bodies, in response to recent trends and opportunities.
In addition to thematic discussions on management systems and plans, the activity included a case-study visit to the sites of Villa Adriana and Villa d'Este, Tivoli, Italy.
