The African World Heritage Fund is one of the partners for the global OURWORLDHERITAGE Initiative. OURWORLDHERITAGE is a global initiative promoted by a group of individuals in the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
The aim of the initiative is to transform the way in which the World Heritage Convention is implemented by raising awareness about the threats that natural and cultural World Heritage sites are facing in the 21st Century, due to increasing development pressures, industrial and mining operations, climate change, unsustainable tourism and conflicts. The initiative will also be calling on the responsibilities of member states as well as of public and private actors to respect the spirit of the Convention and to address future conservation challenges…….For more information on the OUR WORLD HERITAGE INITIATIVE click here.
