WHL workshop in BerlinThe ICCROM-IUCN World Heritage Leadership (WHL) programme, together with the Focal Point for World Heritage at the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, delivered a workshop on World Heritage management to support site coordinators and institutions involved in the third cycle of the Periodic Reporting Exercise.  

On 23 January 2023, site coordinators and representatives of institutions managing World Heritage sites in Germany met in Berlin for a capacity-building workshop dedicated to World Heritage management. The workshop was organized to support their participation in the Third Cycle of Periodic Reporting – an overarching self-assessment that acts as a core monitoring mechanism of the World Heritage Convention. 

The workshop focused on key World Heritage concepts, such as values and attributes, factors affecting heritage, and governance. It provided participants with an overview of existing and forthcoming resources, such as the Guidance and Toolkit for Impact Assessment in a World Heritage Context and Enhancing Our Heritage Toolkit 2.0 (coming soon!). 

In the coming months, WHL will continue working with the Federal Foreign Office of Germany and the German Commission for UNESCO to design further capacity-building activities for site coordinators and managing institutions.
