The African World Heritage Fund (AWHF) and the University of Kent in collaboration with the University of Yaoundé, the Ministry of Forests and Wildlife, the Ministry of the Environment, Nature Protection and
Sustainable Development, and the Ministry of Arts and Culture of Cameroon are organizing a Workshop on World Heritage and Sustainable Development in Africa. Following the first workshop in Robben Island in 2019, this three day workshop is part of a series of initiatives aimed at improving dialogue between different stakeholders (political decision-makers, development actors, heritage practitioners and local communities). It aims to discuss ways to implement the 2015 UNESCO Policy. This requires applied testing towards assisting State Parties to embark on sustainable and adaptive reuses at and around World Heritage sites. It also implies identifying best practices and challenges at different scales (region, country, site) towards developing locally driven framework and approaches on heritage and sustainable development.
