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, working not only 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.
