Reinforcing the implementation of the World Heritage Convention

IUCN, ICOMOS and ICCROM have been working together since 2010 to strengthen links between cultural and natural heritage under the World Heritage Convention.

This work aims to enhance international and regional capacity on natural heritage through a series of workshops.

The purpose of these workshops is to:

  • Update and inform cultural and natural heritage professionals on Advisory Body activities and processes supporting the implementation of the World Heritage Convention;
  • Build and enhance the capacity of professionals and strengthen the technical networks of the Advisory Bodies, to support the identification, evaluation and conservation of World Heritage properties; and
  • Enhance communication and collaboration between cultural and natural heritage professionals within Advisory Body networks, to support a more effective implementation of the World Heritage Convention.

To learn more about the Advisory Bodies’ capacity building, see the newsletters.
