The African World Heritage Fund (AWHF) was created in 2006 to support the effective conservation and protection of cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value in Africa. The main objective of AWHF is to address the challenges faced by African State Parties in the implementation of the 1972 Convention, specifically, the underrepresentation of African sites on the World Heritage List and the insufficient conservation and management of these sites.

As part of the AWHF contribution to enhance conservation and management of World Heritage properties, an annual application for Conservation Grants has been set up. In general, the Conservation Grants have assisted African States Parties to undertake projects that have made a positive impact on the state of conservation of sites inscribed of World Heritage List.
