Job Description Background The World Heritage Committee adopted the African Periodic report at its 26 session held during 2002 in Budapest, Hungary, which report dealt with the challenges encountered by many African countries regarding the identification, conservation, protection and preservation of the World Heritage Sites on the African continent and the implementation of the Convention’s principles and tenets in general. In general, the African Periodic Report states that given her cultural and natural diversity, Africa is grossly under-represented in the World Heritage list and a few of her countries have not ratified the Convention. Further a significant number of the World Heritage Sites that are listed on the World Heritage List in danger are on the African Continent. The mandate of the Fund is generally to assist African countries that are signatories to the Convention in their heritage conservation efforts, in particular, through financing the identification and listing of African Heritage sites in the World Heritage List. Purpose of this role Coordinate activities which contribute to AWHF’s mandate to support the implementation of the 1972 World Heritage Convention on the African continent.
